Workshop – Drainage of large rockslides – Oslo 30-31th of January 2017

M. Jaboyedoff participated to the Workshop – Drainage of large rockslides in Oslo on 30-31th of January 2017 at The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE). He presented: “Structure of the Åknes rock slope – comparable to others sites with drainage?” The goal of this workshop was to discuss the possibility of a drainage of the Åknes rockslide, because this landslide moves and can promote a tsunami if it fails, which will affect a lot of inhabited areas.

By the way, a movie has been done about this specific site: the Wave.
