New measuring and data analysis method for geological and hydrological investigation of high loess banks

By means of the method can be checked if the high loess wall has any relation to a deeper geological formation, which may couple the landslide to e.g. tectonic movements. The second possible application of the method is the detection of gravity change due to vertical and horizontal displacement (redistribution) of topographic masses. Although this is a rather theoretical possibility because of the expected low deformation rate prior to a landslide event, the variation of water table monitored by gravity measurements may be an important indicator in the prediction of possible surface movements.
