AbstractThe mandate of Inter-Departmental Letter of Agreement 5170 (IDLA-4755) between Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Transport Canada (TC) was to research and monitor landslides where vital railway infrastructure and operations, public safety, and the environment are at risk. IDLA-4755 combined research and development of landslide monitoring technologies in the Thompson River valley, British Columbia with new activities in the Assiniboine River valley along the borders of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and other sites in Canada. This report focuses on the 2019-2020 results and interpretation of: a) monitoring with real-time kinematic global navigational satellite system (RTK-GNSS); and, b) photogrammetry using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and commercially available software in the Assiniboine River valley.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Natural Resources Canada and Transport Canada research and monitor landslides where vital railway infrastructure and operations, public safety, and the environment are at risk. This report focuses on the 2019-2020 results and interpretation of monitoring landslides in the Assiniboine River valley, Manitoba.
