Downie Slide, British Columbia, Canada

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The Downie Slide case history demonstrates the importance of detailed site investigation and long-term monitoring, as well as the need for reinterpretation of the local geologic, structural, and groundwater conditions, and reassessment of slope stability as new information becomes available. Forty-five years of inves- tigation, monitoring, and assessment have been carried out at Downie Slide. The long history of studies, coupled with recent technological advances in analytical tools, has enabled us to better understand the behavior of large complex landslides.
