Landslide early-warning integrated system

Objective

The LEWIS project develops a new integrated Earth Observation (EO) approach for producing landslide-warning maps. It first uses the analysis of historical multi-source satellite data for the detection of surface feature changes related to causative and triggering mechanisms that have preceded landslide events. The images will be obtained for test sites where records of ground-monitored landslide movements are already available. Surface changes and those detected by future periodic EO acquisitions will be verified against landslide events that occur within the instrumented test sites. A conceptual slope instability model which relies on spatial ground data stored within a GIS and artificial intelligence techniques will be used to link the changes detected by EO to potentially unstable ground conditions. This new methodology will form the basis for the production of low cost and wide-area prototype landslide early warning for EU citizens.
