LANDSLIDES & GEOHAZARDS

TECHNICAL SUMMIT

November 20, 2020

Understanding Earth Movement

Landslides and other types of mass earth movement threaten budgets, asset integrity, human safety, and environmental compliance. They occur in every state and, in some regions, with greater frequency and more severe consequences now than ever before. 


Geohazards are often perceived as stand-alone threats managed through a manual, reactive process. However, new advances in remote sensing, machine learning, and
environmental modeling are transforming the way we understand, detect, mitigate, monitor, and manage landslide risk.


This virtual conference experience brings together industry leaders, subject matter experts, and innovative practitioners to examine tools for applying the power of data to prevent and resolve geotechnical threats.

Presenters from government and industry will address these issues while drawing comparisons to traditional methods of Geohazards/Landslide Technical Analysis to provide an honest assessment of the digital future of the Landslide Analysis industry.
