DGSI, known for their Slope Indicator inclinometer equipment, announced a trade-in program of up to $3,500 in credit towards their new Digitilt AT System. Their new system features new solid-state MEMS technology, a Bluetooth cable reel that connects to an Android tablet to replace the bulky readout box, and higher quality wheels on the probe for improved tracking through tight curves. The cable is also lighter, and you can get a special backpack for the reel to make it easier to carry over rugged terrain.
The Washington office of Rhode Island-based Geo-Instruments has been contracted to setup (and operate?) a geotechnical and structural monitoring system for the I-5 Undercrossing Project of the overall University Link light rail extension Project. Beginning […]

Since I last posted about this landslide, ADOT has added several videos to their YouTube channel. It’s clear that this highway is going to be closed for the long term. ADOT and their on-call geotechnical consultant tasked with this project, Kleinfelder, are currently drilling boreholes to attempt to characterize the failure surface and determine what the geometry of the failure surface is. They are installing at least 10 inclinometers to try to determine the location of the slip plane or planes at depth and they have two extensometers to measure if any additional movement occurs. They are also performing LIDAR surveys as well. Check out the videos below.
