Tamar Valley landslide field trip and workshop

The Tasmanian Chapter in association with Mineral Resources Tasmania is holding a workshop and field trip in the Launceston area. The 2-day meeting will preview and discuss the latest landslide mapping in the landslide prone Tamar Valley that feeds into a statewide planning layer. It will also include a case study on an active landslide in an urban setting.

The first day (commencing at 1pm) will include a series of technical presentations and an evening meal.

The second day will comprise a bus trip to inspect an active landslide in the morning, where investigation methods and mitigation solutions will be demonstrated. The afternoon will be spent visiting several sites south of Launceston to demonstrate the utility of the new susceptibility mapping and the types and styles of landslide features that occur there. The field trip will conclude in Launceston at 4pm. However, an informal walk up the beautiful Cataract Gorge (with a few geotechnical issues thrown in and followed by a meal) will be arranged for those intending to stay overnight in Launceston after the event.

Bookings are essential to reserve a place and to indicate any dietary requirements.
