Boulder movement in two debris flow channels and a landslide in the Bhote Koshi catchment, Nepal, May to October 2019

The data contains location and x,y,z accelerometer readings from trackers embedded into 23 boulders in the upper Bhote Koshi catchment, Nepal before the 2019 monsoon season. The data was transmitted in real time via a long-range wide-area network (LoRaWAN®) gateway to a server. The data presented cover the period May 2019 to October 2019. The data from this study was used to demonstrate how cost-effective technology can be used to monitor boulder movement in hazard-prone sites, and to show the potential for active sensors connected through a long-range wide-area network (LoRaWAN®) to be used in an early warning system in the future. Data was collected by the data authors.

This was carried out as part the BOULDER: Accounting for BOUlders in Landslide-flood Disaster Evaluation and Resilience project, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Award reference NE/S005951/1
