Landslides are one of the most commonly occurring natural disasters. Recognition of the geometry of clay layers and the behaviour of their physical properties during and after a disturbance (e.g., excess rainfall) is crucial to understanding the mechanism of a landslide. A multidisciplinary geophysical survey led by Uppsala University was conducted over a landslide scar near the Gta river in southwest Sweden. Here, we present the application of full-waveform inversion/tomography (FWT) to two perpendicular seismic profiles that cross the landslide scar. Obtained high-resolution P-wave velocity models portrait geometry of the low-velocity zones attributed to the quick-clay layer.
