Purpose  In order to figure out the landslide mechanism and take measures against landslides, it is one of the important problems to accurately grasp the behavior of groundwater and clarify the relationship between the behavior of groundwater and the landslide fluctuations. For this reason, surveys and observations have been carried out for the purpose of the accurate grasp of the behavior of groundwater, and various analysis methods for clarifying the relationship between the behavior of groundwater and the landslide fluctuations have been proposed by utilizing such results. The results are applied to the efficient landslide countermeasures plan and the effect judgment. They have effects for practical use.

 On the other hand, in recent years, a large-scale landslide has occurred due to abnormal torrential rains, earthquakes, etc., and thereby serious damage has caused. Even in such disasters, it has become clear that the groundwater have a tremendous impact. In addition, although maintenance and management of the landslide prevention facilities is a problem, in order to properly evaluate the effectiveness and performance of countermeasures and achieve the effective operation, it is necessary to accurately grasp the behavior of groundwater and utilize it. As such, it has increasingly become important to grasp the behavior of groundwater in landslide areas and clarify the relationship between the behavior of groundwater and the landslide fluctuations. There is need to further develop the accumulated research results and technologies, and proceed to apply them to the actual practice.

 This symposium will be held for reviewing the results of the previous research and technology development on the landslide fluctuations and the behavior of groundwater and clarifying the problems to be addressed in the future. The recent researches will provide the lectures and topics on the influence of deep groundwater, new knowledge on groundwater and landslide movement in snowy areas, the application of new research and analytical techniques in the field, etc. In order to take measures for the effective landslide prevention and establish the safe and secure national land, we will deepen discussion on the problems to be addressed by landslide researchers and technicians. The active discussion will be expected.
