General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Predicting the location of geohazards is an important consideration for pipeline routing and facility siting and this information is particularly critical in the planning phase when we have had little chance to install on-the-ground measurement devices that can give us high frequency and detailed data.

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information,          11. Determine lithology, mineralogy and structural properties of the near surface,   13. Monitor ground movement,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

If geohazards such as landslides or landslips are present and these threats are identified, appropriate mitigation can be arranged.  This may be via re-routing or re-enforcement.

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Terrain mapping, if it exists

9

What kind of solution do you envisage could address this challenge?

Satellite-derived information, capable of resolutions of a few centimetres or better, offers detailed monitoring of changes in the surface of the ground. Satellites can, therefore, assist in minimising and mitigating damage caused by landslides.

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology
