Abstract

All available methods to obtain insight into the flow slide susceptibility have been applied on one location. This demonstrates, that the level of available knowledge is of influence on the quality of the advice. An overview of the methods and the results is given. The results are discussed. The conclusion is, that advanced study improves the understanding of uncertainties, and therefore gives a better assessment of risks. In this case, insight lead to the advice that no expensive measures were necessary, at least for part of the location.
