Project Summary

This project will address some key research needs in the development of an early warning system for rainfall-induced landslides, such as the necessity of costly and sophisticated equipment and time-consuming testing process in the characterization of unsaturated soils, development of accurate infiltration-evaporation model, and prediction of slope failure under the influence of rainfall (climatic) events.
