MONITORING SOLUTIONS FOR NATURAL HAZARDS
Protect critical infrastructure located in high-risk areas.
Tens of thousands of landslides occur all over the world, creating a big threat to infrastructure and public safety. Slope failures may easily cost up to several hundred million dollars in direct and indirect costs annually for a country. Landslides can even occur in very flat places, where rivers create steep slopes that are often next to critical infrastructures like roads, railways, and pipelines. Where slope instability coincides with civil infrastructure, there is an opportunity to mitigate risk with real-time monitoring with Artusa. In order to serve the best to the public, Artusa is cooperating with Geobrugg and Geopraevent.
