Mars Odyssey image of landslide

Although landslides on other planets have not been a major theme of this blog, there is an interesting area of science that focuses on these intriguing phenomena. Of course a great deal of this research is quite difficult given our poor knowledge of the conditions on and in the slopes when they occur. The availability of increasingly high resolution imagery is however helping in the understanding of these features. There …

TRMM and landslide monitoring

One of the most admirable science projects at NASA at the current time is an attempt to create a global landslide and flood warning system using the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission satellite data. TRMM using a precipitation radar system to provide near real time data on the intensity of rainfall in the tropical and subtropical regions. NASA then make these data available on the TRMM website. The usefulness of these …
