This report describes Swedish experiences of the work related to landslides within the Swedish test sites, Vagnhärad and Sundsvall, of the EC funded PREVIEW project (PREVention, Information and Early Warning).
Within the project a Landslides WEB GIS platform has been developed for the Swedish test sites based on the Swedish landslide hazard zonation method. Geophysical investigations have been tested, with good results, based on the idea that they could be used as a tool to estimate the soil profile in general, e.g. as a part of the overview landslide hazard mapping. Satellite radar data (differential Syntethic Aperture Radar (DIFSAR)) have been tested to detect movements prior to an actual landslide, which for various reasons turned out to be impracticable.
