LTER NoeSLIDE - Austria

Landslides (translational and rotational slides, debris flows, rock avalanches, rock falls, etc.) rank among the most common natural hazards in Lower Austria. As these processes often inherit sporadic phases of activity, it is essential to generate specific long-term measurement series, enabling the analysis of surface and sub-surface dynamics in connection with potential triggering factors. Therefore, in 2014 the project “NoeSLIDE – Monitoring diverse types of landslides in Lower Austria” was initiated. Three subsites are summarized under the parent site "LTER NoeSLIDE".where various types of landslide processes, Hofermühle (complex earth slide - earth flow), Gresten (Salcher landslide) and Brandstatt are monitored with "classic" as well as novel approaches. This includes surface and subsurface monitoring systems. The main research aims comprise implementation of long-term monitoring systems (10+ years) for continuous observation of gravitational mass movements, testing of novel and innovative methods on multiple locations and data availability in a WebGIS application for simple online analyses for authorized users.
