Project Title: Innovative approaches to identifying and mapping coastal landslides
Project Description: Landslide databases are required for the assessment of susceptibility and understanding of risk. Landslide inventories are a time and resource intensive activity. This project will explore the use of machine learning algorithms and drone technology to enable a more accurate mapping and inventory-building capability for coastal landslides.
