AEG March Meeting—March 10—RSVP by 5:00 on March 8: The Challenges of Providing Landslide Information During an Emergency Response

Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG) March Meeting
Topic:
The Challenges of Providing Landslide Information During an Emergency Response
Speaker:
Mr. Jerome V. De Graff

Abstract: Geologists may find themselves being members of a team called as part of an emergency response when a destructive landslide happens. Being successful during such a stressful and intense assignment requires rapid acquisition of needed geologic information. Experience with a large landslide event damming a river in Dominica, West Indies in 1997 and a large rock slide which buried a major highway in California in 2006 illustrate strategies for effectively accomplishing the tasks necessary to provide required information.
