Slope Stability Modeling

Hyper-detailed surface modeling and change detection methods have been developed to understand slope stability along critical Alaska highways at Glitter Gulch and Long Lake.

The lidar visualization technique this project has developed enables highway managers to understand changes in slope characteristics along highways. This change detection and analysis can inform decisions for slope inspection and remediation. Mitigating unstable slopes and their associated hazards reduce threats to safety and regional commerce, and enables resources to be better allocated.
