Ground Instabilities are among the most widespread geological hazards on Earth. Thousands of deaths and injuries, and enormous economic loss are regrettable evidences of worldwide slope instabilities. The necessity to identify and monitor slope movement is of paramount importance to reduce the socio-economic toll that every year is paid in developing as well as in developed countries.
Several projects funded by ESA within the framework of its Data User Program (DUP), have investigated the feasibility and the operational applicability of spaceborne imagery to respond to the needs of governmental institutions that have a mandate in landslide prevention. The SLAM project was built on the results of the feasibility studies and aimed at developping an end-to-end service chain for the provision of Slope Instability products.
Three types of products and services were developed and demonstrated:
|IGARSS 2004 - Landslide Risk Analysis by means of Remote
FRINGE 2003 - SLAM, a service for Landslide Monitoring ba
FRINGE 2003 - Integration of Permanent Scatterers Analysi
