The journal Landslides is the common platform for publication of integrated research on all aspects of landslides. The journal publishes research papers, news of recent landslide events and information on the activities of the International Consortium on Landslides.
Abstract Landslide research is an interdisciplinary field that primarily encompasses scientists from geomorphology, engineering geology, and geotechnical engineering in collaboration with.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.
Results: The studies carried out through back analysis showed the saturated mode before landslide stability of the mass; however, the Dashtegan-Rudbar landslide happened during constructing the.

Each landslide is documented as fully as possible with information on location, name, size and dimensions, landslide type, trigger, damage caused, movement date, age and with a full bibliographic reference. The database is linked to a GIS which displays the landslides as point data.

Abstract Assessment of landslide is an important aspect for evaluation, zoning and risk management.Numerous methods and techniques were discussed by the researchers for landslide hazard zonation.
Location map showing landslide prone areas In the Central Kenya highlands, Central Province, Kenya (after Chrr'stiansson et al., 1993J. 42 Journal of Alncan EanM Sornr-e., Landslide research in Kenya is the combination of steep slopes, deeply weathered volcanic soils (Davies and Nyambok, 1993) and high rainfall (Rowntree, 1989).
A survey of post-landslide investigation and news paper reports enabled the identification of 29 major landslide events in the state. All except one of the 14 districts in the state are prone to.
We are the definitive source of landslide information in Great Britain. Landslides are shown on our geological maps and we maintain the National Landslide Database which has over 16 500 records of landslides in Great Britain. Information is gathered from surveys and reports or as part of our responsive work in Great Britain.
This book contains peer-reviewed papers from the Second World Landslide Forum, organised by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL), that took place in September 2011. It also contains photos from the Photo Contest as electronic supplementary material.
The information shown on landslide inventories can be used for a variety of analyses, including: (i) investigating landslide spatial abundance, through the production of landslide density maps; (ii) comparing inventory maps obtained from different sources (e.g., archive and geomorphological) for the same area; (iii) evaluating the completeness of the inventories; (iv) ascertaining landslide.
This webpage gives a brief outline of the Graduate Students in the Landslide Research Programme in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences: Geo-Hazards Research Group. To see what the group has been working on recently, check out our Research Highlights Page. The group is headed by University of Waterloo Professor Stephen G. Evans and includes the following Ph.D. and M.Sc. students.
Landslides can occur in the global continents (Gariano and Guzzetti, 2016), but the research in exploring the mechanisms of landslides and the role that landslides play in the hazard chains is mostly conducted in developed countries that have detailed records of historical landslides with location, magnitude and type (Gariano and Guzzetti, 2016; Guzzetti et al., 1999). The lack of landslide.
The Blackhawk landslide and an adjacent older landslide, the Silver Reef, have many peculiarities of form and structure in common with the historic Elm, Frank, and Sherman landslides; and in lithology, provenance, size, and “coefficient of friction” they strongly resemble many of the monolithologic breccia deposits of possible landslide origin found associated with Tertiary faults and.
Dave Petley is the Wilson Professor of Hazard and Risk in the Department of Geography, and the Executive Director of the Institute of Hazaard, Risk and Resilience at Durham University in the United Kingdom. His blog provides a commentary on landslide events occurring worldwide, including the landslides themselves, latest research, and conferences and meetings.
