Detecting Large Landslides in Remote Areas
September 4, 2013 | NASA Earth Observatory
"Even when they occur in remote areas, large landslides can dam rivers and lead to devastating downstream floods. [...]
Automated earthquake detection systems are tuned to monitor intense, “short-period” waves produced by sudden slips along tectonic faults. Landslides produce seismic waves as well, though their short-period signal is weak. Instead, they make powerful long-period waves that are sometimes detectable at great distances." Quoted from the Earth Observatory article.
