GPS Application in Ginkgo Landslide Monitoring


Article Preview

Ginkgo landslide, located in Ginkgo village, Xixia County in Henan province, is a large earthiness landslide. Considering its serious deformation and the possible serious instability disaster of the landslide, GPS was chosen to monitor this landside. This paper systematically introduces the monitoring program design, data acquisition, data processing, data analysis when GPS was used in Ginkgo landslide monitoring. According to GPS monitoring result analysis, the landslide is at a stage of constant speed deformation. And the rainfall is the main factor inducing the landslide sliding. It’s suggested that close attention should be paid to the landslide when encounter rainstorm, heavy rain or a long time raining so that to relief and prevent disasters.
