The Use of LiDAR for Monitoring and Assessing Landslides

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

This paper illustrates techniques for assessing the location of past and future landslides using LiDAR. More importantly, this paper will use LiDAR to identify areas susceptible to large landslides which is important for hazard mapping, safe zoning, and public safety. The assessment techniques will be illustrated using the 2014 SR-530 landslide near Oso, Washington. This major and tragic landslide exhibited some important aspects of geo-mechanical behavior that will be discussed and how LiDAR and geotechnical reconnaissance can be used to avoid a future tragedy.
