Abstract: We present an methodology for a more detailed and less ambiguous spatial structure interpretation of small, shallow landslides. The spatial structure interpretation of this type of landslides bases on both underground and surface models and requires high-density data. This methodology involves the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR), electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) and terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) techniques. GPR technique, used for the definition of the underground structure model, provides a time-efficient survey that yields high-resolution data, making it suitable for a shallow subsurface analysis. ERT technique was used only to confirm the results obtained by the GPR survey, since it is more time consuming and more convenient for larger and deeper landslides investigations. The surface model is created using TLS technique, which is time- and cost-effective, produces a large amount of data and is favourable for smaller areas, such as the analysed type of landslides.
To the best of the authors’ knowledge, existing procedures based on either conventional or non-invasive geophysical methods, observe, almost exclusively, larger and deeper landslides. Their real-time monitoring involves a number of sensors and is hardly applicable to small landslides because of their number, location and dimensions. Considering the benefits of each applied technique and the interpretation of the results obtained from field data, it is clear that the main advantages of the realized application are the efficiency and applicability for small shallow landslides whose number and impact on the environment are dominant. Therefore, it represents a solid basis for landslide mitigation.
The verification of the methodology was made on a small, shallow landslide in the village of Vinča, near Belgrade, Serbia.
