Hansruedi Maurer, Thomas Spillmann, Björn Heincke, Christian Hauck, Simon Loew, Sarah M. Springman and Alan G. Green assess the potential and limitations of diverse surface and borehole geophysical techniques for investigating potentially unstable mountain slopes which can potentially put transport routes, power networks, communication lines, and human habitats at risk.
