Monitoring

The inclinometer probe is used to measure angle variations along a soil profile. These variations can be transformed into horizontal displacements along the profile depth, enabling the understanding of the deformation of geotechnical structures (e.g., tailings dams, embankment dams, rockfill dams, and excavations) and natural slopes. Such knowledge can ...

This study was carried out in an instrumented and monitored embankment divided into two symetrical sections and constructed with compacted treated soils (i.e., a silty soil and a clayey soil) exposed to the same atmospheric conditions in a continental climate, with oceanic influences. It aimed to investigate changes of bare soil surface moisture (w) and...

In Brazil, landslides are frequent, causing deaths and property damage, and occur under the influence of natural and/or anthropic conditions. Rain acts as the main non-anthropic agent in triggering this phenomenon. Because of this, the prediction of landslides becomes an essential tool for managing high-risk areas. The Metropolitan Region of Recife (MRR...

Interferometry is a technique that can be applied to SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) images that allow obtaining Digital Elevation Models, displacement measurements and assistance for monitoring large areas and/or engineering constructions. The objective of this paper is to present aspects related to the technique of Interferometry SAR (InSAR) applied to...
