Speaker Bio:

Mr. Saraceno is an accomplished Professional Geologist with a combined 18 years of experience in both environmental and engineering geology. He is involved in many aspects of geologic and geotechnical engineering projects, including site characterization, foundation design and construction, soil/rock slope risk assessments, and landslide mitigation. Mr. Saraceno is the Landslides Program Manager at DiGioia Gray & Associates, where he specializes in project management and construction oversight for slope stabilization projects in Appalachia.

Speaker Abstract:

The Appalachian region can be generally characterized by steep slopes, relatively shallow surficial soils, and tendency for high-intensity rain events. Because of these factors, it is one of the most naturally landslide-prone areas and has one of the highest incidences of landslides in the United States. In addition, over 25 million people call this region home. Besides the obvious threat to safety, landslides pose a threat to the infrastructure that supports the populations of this and surrounding regions, such as electrical transmission lines which often traverse some of the most remote, steep, and landslide-prone terrain throughout the region. This talk will walk through the phased approach used by Nate for landslide projects at remote locations within West Virginia, Kentucky, and surrounding states, from initial data collection and observation through construction of engineered mitigation.
