Landslide failure prediction

Can the time of failure of landslides be predicted? Which kind of predictive models can be used? Is the continuous monitoring of displacement a useful tool?
You can find answers to some of these questions in the paper "A field experiment for calibrating landslide time-of-failure prediction functions" by Bozzano F., Cipriani I., Mazzanti P. & Prestininzi A., published in the prestigious "International Journal of Rock Mechanics & Mining Sciences"
