Julian Waeber, Phd candidate in Geological Engineering at U.C. Berkeley has installed a device to track the landslide in the garden, part of the larger Blakemont slide. The  solar powered device will communicate with a satellite daily to track the amount of movement of the landslide. Also installed will be a USGS seismograph to monitor the Hayward fault that runs through the upper part of the  garden.
