2015.04 | Article comment | AGU landslide website | Petley’s blog

Hi, today I have had a very good surprise, one of our publications has been cited by David Petley in his well known “landslide blog”. You can read his review here: http://blogs.agu.org/landslideblog/2015/04/13/review-progressive-failure-spain/ This is a good recognisement of more than seven years monitoring on the cliff where I developed most of my PhD methods for rockfall detection and prediction..
