AbstractThe Gaspesie railroad runs directly across an active rock slide along the coast of Baie des Chaleurs, Gaspésie. The volume is estimated at more than 500 000 m³. The rock cliff shows scars in the order of 1000 m³ associated with planar slides, which are all located within a more impressive scar with dimensions similar to the active rock slide. It has been observed from the DEM generated from an airborne LiDAR survey. In fall 2009, instruments have been installed in boreholes and on the slope surface to monitor this gravitational movement.
