Slope stability

Slope stability monitoring

An important application of geophysical monitoring methods is represented by long-term observations of tilt changes of the critical slope stability area at the edge of the open-pit coal mine ČSA in Most, North Bohemia. Tilt observations, as well as the groundwater level recording, contribute to the slope stability monitoring system that is designed to assess the risk for mine personnel and technology.

See Gravity observatory Jezeří for details.
