UNSTABLE ROCK SLOPES IN MØRE OG ROMSDAL

The unstable slope Mount Mannen, located in the Møre and Romsdal County of Norway, is under continuous monitoring.
The project "Risk and Vulnerability Assessment for Unstable Slopes in Møre and Romsdal" has the goal of systematically mapping all unstable rock slopes in Møre and Romsdal County, Norway.

Unstable rock slopes and their potential runout areas will be mapped and possible tsunami and other secondary effects will be estimated. Where it is deemed necessary, unstable rock slopes will be periodically monitored for movement. A consequence analysis will be conducted for each unstable slope.

All unstable rock slopes will eventually be evaluated using the standardized hazard and risk classification system (NGU report 2012.029), with the results published online in the database of unstable rock slopes.
