Topographic LIDAR monitoring and modelling of a deep-seated landslide for evaluating nature-based stabilization measures
Supervising board members: Martin Rutzinger, Johann Stötter, Barbara Schneider-Muntau
Continuous and slow moving deep-seated landslides threaten human needs and infrastructure in mountainous areas. In this context the PhD project of Jan Pfeiffer focuses on deepening the understanding of their complex behaviour and assessing their hydro(geo)logical driver. Remote sensing analyses, in-situ measurements, hydrogeological monitoring as well as the exploitation of hydro-climatological and geotechnical modelling approaches are exploited in order to efficiently support planning of mitigation measures (e.g. nature based solutions).
