CYCLE OF SEMINARS IN APPLIED GEOPHYSICS: Integration of geophysical and geotechnical methods to characterize and monitor earthslide
November 24, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
CYCLE OF SEMINARS IN APPLIED GEOPHYSICS Prof. Grégory Bièvre ‐ Université Grenoble Alpes
– Integration of geophysical and geotechnical methods to characterize and monitor earthslides
This seminar will present a combined approach using both classical prospecting techniques (geology, geotechnics, hydrogeology, etc.) and geophysical methods (encompassing remote sensing) to characterize and monitor landslides. This approach has been successfully used on several landslides (rocky and clayey) to characterize their geometry, their internal properties and to evaluate their controlling factors. Special attention will be paid to emerging monitoring techniques (ground geophysics and remote sensing) and recent results will be discussed.

Prof. Grégory Bièvre is part of the Research Team Géophysique des Risques et de l’Environnement in the Earth Science Institute (ISTerre) at the Université Grenoble Alpes (France). His research interests are focused on the characterization of the mechanical hydrological variability of the shallow subsurface with an approach combining multiple sources of data collected with geological, geotechnical, hydrological, geophysical and topographical surveys. He has developed methodologies to study sedimentary rock formations, landslides, anthropogenic structures (geotechnical and archaeological). He is
charge of the Avignonet Landslide site in the framework of the Multidisciplinary Observatory of unstable Slopes (OMIV).
