We present results of refraction seismic tomography supported by resistivity tomography survey on massive landslide developed in unlithified glacial sediments in lowland Poland. The survey allowed authors to identify spatial extent and the depth range of sediments involved, lithology of landslide hosting sediments and subtle changes of lithology within landslide-generated deposits – two generations of colluvium and presence of tufa layer cementing colluvium. Usability of integrated geophysical approach to landslide site investigation, based both on seismic and resistivity methods was suggested.
