Study and monitoring activities on Arzeno landslide – Municipality of Ne (GE)

project-MonitoraggioArzeno-evidenza

Background

The Municipality of Ne (GE) is involved by an important landslide in the Arzeno and Prato di Reppia areas. The phenomenon is monitored using standard techniques for some years. The goals of this study is increasing the knowledge of the phenomenon using automatic monitoring systems

Purpose

The goal of the study is to increase the knowledge of the landslide through advanced monitoring techniques.

Methods

Use of a robotized inclinometer system developed and patented by the CNRI IRPI (Pat. UIBM 0001391881/2012) and use of wireless piezometric sensor networks.

Results

The expected results are: describing the trend of the depth displacements and to search the correlations with the piezometric level and rainfalls.

Products

Inclinometric and piezometric monitoring data in near real time.

Conclusions

The study aims to characterize the deep deformations trend and the relationships with the underground circulation and the rainfalls.
