Detect movement in downstream side of dam, particularly during
impounding. Help define any shear zones in foundation.
Monitor stability of upstream slopes during and after impounding.
Failure of slopes could result in wave that over-tops dam.
Determine type of shear and depth, direction, magnitude, and rate
of movement (constant, accelerating, or decelerating).
Inclinometers not installed in clay core unless critical to monitor-
