Abstract. In this brief communication, we describe a case study about monitoring a soft-rock coastal cliff using webcams and strain sensors, located in the Apulia region (southeastern Italy). In this urban and touristic area, coastal recession is extremely rapid and rockfalls are very frequent. Using low-cost and open source hardware and software, we are monitoring the area, trying to correlate both meteorological information with measures obtained from crack-meters and webcams, aiming to recognize potential precursor signals that may trigger instability phenomena.

Short summary
In the Apulia region (southeastern Italy) we are monitoring a soft-rock coastal cliff using webcams and strain sensors. In this urban and touristic area, coastal recession is extremely rapid and rockfalls are very frequent. In our work we are using low-cost and open source hardware and software, trying to correlate both meteorological information with measures obtained from crack-meters and webcams, aiming to recognize potential precursor signals that may trigger instability phenomena.
