The Thompson River valley, south of Ashcroft in British Columbia, Canada, has experienced several landslides since the mid-1800s. The national railways that run along the valley cross a number of these landslides. All the landslides occur in glacial deposits, typically sliding on weak clay layers. An evaluation of satellite InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) using RADARSAT-2 images between September 2013 and November 2015 provides new insight into landslide displacements in the Thompson River valley. This information enhances the ongoing hazard management of unstable terrain. Landslide hazards in the Thompson River valley, British Columbia adversely impact vital national railway infrastructure and operations, the environment, cultural heritage features, communities, public safety and the economy.
Open image in new window In this paper we present the first results from Coherent Points Analyses and Differential Stacking of RADARSAT-2 InSAR persistent scatterer interferograms covering a portion of the Thompson River valley, south of Ashcroft in British Columbia Canada. Surface displacements amounting to less than 5 cm/year are detected on landslides that are crossed by national railway infrastructure (train tracks and lock-block retaining walls). Our study shows that many landslides in the Thompson River valley have zones of displacement that are more active than others.

Her balanced evaluation should help us as we consider importing into our eld some of those methods. Economists seem to have the most developed and widely accepted value assessment tools.
British Columbia Heritage Rivers Program. The role of the Heritage Rivers Program is to encourage community-based stewardship, to provide a model for public participation in river management, to formally recognize outstanding examples of our river heritage and to reflect the vision for each river as we move into the future. Heritage Rivers System. Starting in 1995 the . Heritage Rivers System worked to select 20 rivers representative of the diversity of . The first 7 rivers were designated in 1996
Cultural heritage management (CHM) is the vocation and practice of managing cultural heritage. It is a branch of cultural resources management (CRM), although it also draws on the practices of cultural conservation, restoration, museology, archaeology, history and architecture. While the term cultural heritage is generally used in Europe, in the USA the term cultural resources is in more general use specifically referring to cultural heritage resources
More Europeans entered the Thompson River valley in the early to mid 1800s, drawn by the fur trade and small gold rushes. Others started farming on the fertile benches of the river, and a North West Company trading fort at the confluence of the North and South rivers became the city of Kamloops, now the largest human population center in the watershed.

Southwestern British Columbia’s history centres around the discovery of the mighty Fraser River. Ironically, the early European explorers roaming the coast missed the mouth of the Fraser River due to the dense fog. The Fraser was discovered in 1791 by Spaniard Jose Maria Narvaez, a pilot in the Spanish Navy. Adventurous explorers and fur traders of the Northwest Company were heading west across the Rockies.
