Environmental seismology for detection of rockslide activity in Norway *Description*: Active rockslides occur in high mountain terrain where multiple surface processes including rockslides, snow avalanches, rack fall, and rock glacial creep are coexisting and are primarily driven by geological processes and climate change. Rockslide activity is manifested by the failure process at depth as well as rock fall activity at its surface. Precise localization of the seismic source and its … [more]
