Can Landslide destruction be prevented using monitoring instrumentation?

Can Landslide destruction be prevented using monitoring instrumentation?

A good prediction and forewarning system coupled with effective efforts to control and mitigate landslides, destruction caused by landslides can be drastically reduced.

In areas prone to landslides, detection of slope movement in early stages and measurement of ground water pressure is not difficult. It requires visual examination and use of reliable instruments to measure displacement and ground water pressure. Encardio-rite provides state of the art automatic solutions for remote monitoring of landslide and slope stability (online-web based). The cost of monitoring solution is a small fraction of what is spent later on in rescue operations, removing debris and rehabilitation. By monitoring slope movement, corrective action may become possible earlier than the occurrence of the landslide.
