    • In-situ monitoring of slope mass-wasting: examples from the Pyrenees 

      Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Moya Sánchez, José; Vaunat, Jean (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Slope mass-wasting triggered by rainfall is a complex phenomenon and representsan important hazard in most mountainous regions. In-situ monitoring of the involved processes is difficult due to harsh environmental conditions ...
    • Influencia del desembalse en la estabilidad de una ladera: caso real 

      Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Moya Sánchez, José (2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Un aspecto crítico a controlar en la gestión de embalses es la velocidad de descenso de nivel de agua debido al riesgo de inestabilidades en las laderas que lo forman. Este artículo presenta el estudio realizado para conocer ...
    • Monitoring of a full-scale embankment experiment regarding soil–vegetation–atmosphere interactions 

      Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Fraccica, Alessandro; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Moya Sánchez, José; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Vaunat, Jean (2018-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      Slope mass-wasting like shallow slides are mostly triggered by climate effects, such as rainfall, and soil–vegetation–atmosphere (SVA) interactions play a key role. SVA interactions are studied by a full-scale embankment ...
    • Monitoring of fast moving landslides in the Pyrenees 

      Mavrouli, Olga Christina; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Abanco Martínez de Arenzana, Claudia; Moya Sánchez, José; Copons Llorens, Ramon; Ruiz Carulla, Roger (2016)

      The paper presents the experience of two instrumented sites in the Pyrenees where debris flows and rock falls occur frequently. The first one is the debris-flow monitoring system in the Rebaixader catchment, Central Pyrenees, ...
    • Monitoring of rainfall and soil moisture at the Rebaixader catchment (Central Pyrenees) 

      Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Oorthuis Gómez, Raül; Abanco Martínez de Arenzana, Claudia; Carleo, Luigi; Moya Sánchez, José (Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG), 2019)
      Conference report
