Site Description
The ENGAGE working group (Geomorphological Systems and Risk Research at the Institute for Geography and Regional Research) has been running a long-term monitoring project to investigate landslides in Lower Austria. Landslides (translational and rotational failures, debris flows, rock avalanches, rock falls, etc.) number among the most abundant natural hazards in Lower Austria. Resulting from sporadic phases of activity it is essential to generate specific long-term measurement series, enabling the analysis of changes in surface movements as well as underground in connection with triggering factors. Therefore, in 2014 the project “NoeSLIDE – Monitoring diverse types of landslides in Lower Austria” was initiated. The research sites are compiled under the parent site "LTER NoeSLIDE" which has three subsites, of which one is the Brandstatt Landslide Monitoring Site. The Brandstatt landslide is a large-scale and deep landslide that is coupled with smaller and more superficial processes. The movement rates are low but have a high damaging effect. The area was therefore i.a. investigated by the GBA (Geological Survey of Austria) on behalf of the regional geology of Lower Austria. In order to investigate superficial changes, the area was recorded using TLS.
