Dam monitoring from satellites (DAMSAT) is a system which uses satellite technology to remotely monitor water and tailings dams and other tailings storage facilities. The system helps to reduce the risk of failure of these structures and the consequent risk to population and damage to ecosystems downstream upon which many vulnerable communities rely for both their source of water and livelihoods.
We will be presenting the paper “Satellite remote monitoring of dams with real time SUMMIT-SHM and wide surface movement” at the Dam World Conference in Lisbon, Portugal in September. See you there! (travel restrictions permitting)
