There is a nice article on slow moving landslides at  They discuss the use of InSAR technology and point out how a number of landslides in the news over the past several years have had at least some movement before a catastrophic event. To me, the interesting part is just how a topic of interest to geoprofessionals is covered by scientists who perhaps aren’t experts in these areas.  They also mention some of the more infamous slow moving landslides that are currently being researched.  It’s worth a quick scan.
