Based on the assumption that the slope bodies are rigid, the dynamic model of the landsiding (forward model) was put forward. According to the dynamic model, the system equations of Kalman filter were constituted. The mechanical status of a slope was hence combined with the monitoring data by Kalman filter. The model uncertainties or model errors could also be considered through some fictitious observation equations. Different from existed methods, the presented method can make use for not only the statistic information contained in the data but also the information provided by the mechanical and geological aspect of slopes. At last a numerical example was given out to show the feasibility of the method.
