A technique for monitoring slope stability in a geological setting through impedance tomography is demonstrated. An iterative absolute Gauss-Newton solver simultaneously constructs estimates of the underground resistivity distribution and movement of the stimulation and measurement electrodes. The results are a step toward demonstrating that a cost effective and potentially predictive monitoring technology could be practical
