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.

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information,  3. Obtain detailed vegetation information,  4. Obtain detailed land-use information,   6. Identify inland water bodies and determine water quality,        13. Monitor ground movement,  14. Obtain detailed image

7

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

If the migration patterns of geohazards such as rivers are identified, appropriate mitigation can be arranged.  This may be via re-routing or re-enforcement of particular pipeline lengths.

8

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

To be completed by ML

9

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

Very high to medium resolution EO data to monitor changes of rivers and lakes as well as coast lines.

 

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
