Romeo R. W. , Jibson R. W. et al.
<p>Most moderate and large earthquakes trigger landslides, and these landslides commonly account for a significant portion of total earthquake damage and injuries. Thus, formulating scenarios where earthquake-induced landslides are likely to occur can help ...
Filed under: Earthquake Engineering - Seismic Hazard AnalysisReference:
<p>In many environments, landslides preserved in the geologic record can be analyzed to determine the likelihood of seismic triggering. If evidence indicates that a seismic origin is likely for a landslide or group of landslides, and if the landslides can ...
