AbstractPURPOSE OF THIS STUDY: At the request of Mr. J.F. Wallace, Director General of Programs and Operations of the Canada Emergency Measures Organization, the Applications Development Section of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing has undertaken this study of the Chelsea Landslide as a part of a larger program of acquainting Canada E.M.O. with Remote Sensing techniques that may be of use in their studies of disasters. This study gives a practical example of using Remote Sensing in a pro-facto examination of an artificial slope failure. It is not meant as a critique of agencies or individuals involved in the landslide.
