Investigation of Landslides by Seismic and Electrical Resistivity Methods


This paper describes briefly the seismic refraction and electrical resistivity methods and their application to the study of landslides. The results of a study of two landslides in which the two geophysical methods were used to define the slide surface are discussed and compared with results obtained by drilling and sampling.
