Field work in the Andes and Pampeanas Range

Two members of our group (Dr. Ivanna Penna and Dr. Antonio Abellán) have recently conducted several weeks field work research in the Andes and Pampeanas range (Argentina), in collaboration with researchers from the Argentinean Geological Survey (SEGEMAR; Valerie Baumann, Analía Casa, Luis Fauqué, Mariale González and Mario Rosas). In the Mendoza valley, Valerie Baumann is carrying out a PhD study under the supervision of Prof. Constanza Bonadonna (UNIGE) and Prof. Michel Jaboyedoff (UNIL).

Counting with a terrestrial laser scanner, a drone and a Gigapan, the group have collected extensive information on large past slope failures, current slope instabilities, and deformation processes leading to failures…. More updates will come soon!
