AbstractLandslides have killed more Canadians than any other natural hazards. Developing new remote sensing techniques to identify, characterise and monitor motion of landslides will assist in the current national landslide inventory and hazard mapping programs now being planned. Recent research has shown that InSAR techniques have been used to monitor landslide motion under limited conditions.
In this presentation, we report on the use of high-resolution airborne and space borne InSAR images, to map landslide geomorphology and monitor motion on large rock avalanches along strategic transportation corridors in high relief areas. Examples are selected from two different sites in the Canadian Cordillera. Our results have shown that InSAR techniques can be used to monitor landslide motion. We recommend that these methods be used along with other field monitoring tools to provide a more integrated monitoring system in high risk areas.
