Abstract
The Ripley Landslide is one of several slow moving landslides in the Thompson River Valley, near Ashcroft, British Columbia. Both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railway main lines cross this landslide. As a result, the site is an important part of Canada's transportation network and has been investigated and monitored with the goal of developing an operational strategy to aid in the safe operation of the railroads. A summary of the site investigation and monitoring results at the Ripley landslide are presented in this thesis, including information not used in previous publications. The monitoring results have been validated to ensure that the data are representative of the landslide behaviour. The updated geological and monitoring data are then analysed to develop cross sections and gain a better understanding of the kinematics of the Ripley Landslide and the mechanisms controlling its behaviour.
