Beginning of March was a great opportunity for Marc-Henri Derron to visit sites and colleagues in Taiwan for the first time. Invited by Prof. C.W. Lin (National Cheng Kun Univ. in Tainan) and Prof. R.F. Chen (Chinese Culture Univ. in Taipei), Marc-Henri had the opportunity to visit large landslides in central Taiwan, as well as giving 3 presentations on various aspect of landslide investigation techniques.
Slope conditions, steep and weathered, are drastically different from those encountered in the Alps. This visit was the first one for a group Risk’s member and we are confident it will lead to further cooperation.
