English abstract:
In the past there has been a wide range of research work on landslides. However, most of this research has been carried out by a single discipline such as geology of geodesy. Therefore an international and interdisciplinary project was started. The proponents of the project, sponsored by the European Union, believe that a multidisciplinary integration of different methods has the greatest potential for substantial progress in natural hazards management. The goal of the project is the development of methods that allow: The detection of potential landslides, an efficient and continuous observation of critical areas, the derivation of real time information about actual risks.
This can be achieved by three steps:
- Detecting of potential landslides by large scale monitoring.
- Detecting of taking-off-domains by local scale monitoring.
- Impact and risk assessment and development for strategies for alert systems.
