TXT-tool 2.886-1.2: Guidelines for Landslide Monitoring Systems

An Bin Huang, Wen Jong Chang

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This report aims at providing guidelines for setting up field monitoring programs for landslides. Recognizing that many parameters may be involved in landslide monitoring, the report concentrates on ground displacement, rainfall, soil moisture and groundwater conditions as the key elements. The types of instrumentations involved and their field installations are presented. The options of using automated electrical or optical fiber sensor systems are described. A few cases of applying fully automated field monitoring schemes for slope stability monitoring are presented to demonstrate the capabilities of currently available techniques.
