Data analysis can identify seismic traces of landslides

04/1/2013 | SciDev.net

A new method of data analysis could help scientists single out giant landslides from other seismic activity, research that could help predict high-risk areas before the catastrophes occur, according to findings published in the journal Science. The technique currently overestimates the number of landslides, so detection must be confirmed with satellite imagery; however, some scientists believe the system could be refined and globalized in the future.
