AbstractAn integrated mass movement monitoring system including ground and satellite observations has been developed for an active coastal rockslide at Gascons, in the Gaspé Peninsula, Québec which is threatening a railroad. The monitoring system has been put in place in order to understand the various types of movements in an attempt to develop both warning criteria and risk assessment scenarios to be considered as part of a risk management for the Gascons site.
