Landslide Measurement Field

Our papers are listed here.

The field includes the Tokushima Landslide Observatory located in Tokushima Prefecture, one of most landslide prone areas in Japan as a field base. Technologies for the monitoring of landslide movement and triggering factors, the measurement of mechanical and physical landslide paramteres are developed. Field investigation of various types of landslides occuring in Japan and foreign countries are conducted. Current major research topics include:

1) Observational studies

* Movement of crystalline schist landslides associated with fracture-zones
* Earth pressure change due to landslide activities
* Groundwater hydrology and hydrogeology

2) Field Investigations and Instrumentation

* Field investigation of rapid landslides and debris flows in crystalline-schist zone, volcanic deposits zone, and loess area
* Field investigation of large catastrophic landslides triggered by earthquakes such as 2008 Sichuan earthquake and Iwate-Miyagi Inland earthquake

3) Developement of field instrumentation
