Playing it Safe: A New Monitoring System for Tailings Dams can Prevent Disasters (IPP Project Blog)

High in the Peruvian Andes, a pilot study to test new remote sensing technology for far-flung tailings dams, using a combination of Earth Observation (EO) and on-the-ground sensing, and numerical modelling, has just come to a close. Craig Goff, a technical director at HR Wallingford, explains the project and the pioneering DAMSAT system, which could […]

METEOR: Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines

METEOR is a UK Space Agency International Partnership (IPP) project addressing the poor understanding, in some ODA countries, of population exposure to multiple natural hazards. With that in mind, METEOR is co-developing satellite-based Earth Observation (EO) routines to deliver robust information on population exposure and its vulnerability to multi-hazards including earthquakes, flooding, landslides and volcanoes.  This […]

Using Earth Observation for Disaster Resilience Planning and Policymaking

Each year natural disasters negatively impact hundreds of thousands of lives and lead to economic losses averaging US$250-300 billion per annum. These losses are often disproportionately high in developing countries that experience high-rates of poverty and rapid urbanisation, which pushes the most vulnerable into increasingly hazard-prone areas. Furthermore, the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are challenged […]

 

Project & Product Information

Satellite-Structural Health Monitoring (S-SHM) & Satellite Ultra-Precise Motion Monitoring Integrated Technology (SUMMIT) (Telespazio VEGA UK)

http://telespazio-vega.com/ Overview Satellite-Structural Health Monitoring (S-SHMTM): Innovative use of satellite technologies in ground motion based structural engineering monitoring. It is a highly scalable solution that can monitor a single piece of infrastructure up to city-scale survey – to detect structural and ground motions. Satellite Ultra-Precise Motion Monitoring Integrated Technology (SUMMIT): Monitoring of ground motion of […]

Dam Monitoring from SATellites (DAMSAT) (HR Wallingford) (IPP funded)

https://tailingsdams.info/ Overview Dam Monitoring from SATellites (DAMSAT) uses satellite technology to remotely monitor water and tailings dams and other tailings deposit areas. The system will help authorities take preventative action and thus reduce the risk of failure of water and tailings storage facilities and the consequent damage to population and ecosystem services downstream. Solution benefits […]
