Innovations

Objectives

The goal of this working group is to promote new research innovations / technologies for the use in existing or upcoming regional LEWS. Today, established regional LEWS are primarily based on rainfall measurements and modelled soil wetness. In this working group we would like to exchange ideas and experiences related to other information/data that could be useful for recognizing imminent landslide activity: e.g. the use of acoustic or seismic signals, real-time detection of critical soil wetness, real-time use of social-media, or radar-based nowcasting of precipitation.

Activities

Workshops, video-based seminars and newsletters to highlight innovations.
Implementation and test of innovations in real case studies (demonstrators).
