Duke researchers ask: Can soil temperature predict a landslide?

Researchers in Duke University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering have developed a new mathematical model that uses temperatures within a deep-seated landslide to help predict the sudden, catastrophic failure of the moving land mass. A deep-seated landslide is one in which the sliding surface of rock is deep underground, roughly 30 m or even much deeper, notes Manolis Veveakis, Ph.D., an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Duke. 

Although deep-seated landslides are less common than shallow landslides — which involve material located closer to the surface, often in a slurrylike state — the deep-seated events involve
