Landslide activity in the Andes remains an ongoing natural hazard with significant implications for regional development. Slow-moving landslides, while not typically resulting in catastrophic outcomes, can still cause substantial damage to critical infrastructure, including roads, buildings, crops, and hydropower dams. In southeast Ecuador, slow-moving landslides threaten the stability and functionality of theMazar damand reservoir. This thesis aimed to address these challenges by characterizing the slow-moving landslides in theMazar region and developing a systematic approach to identify changes in their displacement rates, understand their physical causes and assess the influence of hydrometeorological forcings.....
