Landslide Monitoring

This section, including the Tokushima Landslide Observatory, conducts long-term observations of landslide movements on several landslides. Technologies for the monitoring of landslide movements and triggering factors are being developed. Observation systems of earthquake motions on landslides were also installed in preparation for the next Nankai Trough great earthquakes.
