Data sets

Hydrogeological data of groundwater and precipitation monitored in the Vögelsberg landslide catchment (1.0) J. Pfeiffer, T. Zieher, J. Schmieder, T. Bogaard, M. Rutzinger, and C. Spötl

Short summary
The activity of slow-moving deep-seated landslides is commonly governed by pore pressure variations within the shear zone. Groundwater recharge as a consequence of precipitation therefore is a process regulating the activity of landslides. In this context, we present a highly automated geo-statistical approach to spatially assess groundwater recharge controlling the velocity of a deep-seated landslide in Tyrol, Austria.
