We define landslide Early Warning Systems and present practical guidelines to assist end-users with limited experience in the design of landslide Early Warning Systems (EWSs). In particular, two flow chart-based tools coming from the results of the SafeLand ...

Precipitation-induced landslide is one of the most important geo-hazards that claim many casualties every year world-side. To mitigate this hazard, the present text addresses monitoring and early warning in relatively small and shallow slope failures that ...

We first review, in five sections, the external perturbations and their associated processes which can lead to landslide failure: i) increase of slope angle, ii) increase of load applied to the slope, iii) rise of groundwater level and pore pressure, iv) frost ...

<p>A study of three translational landslides along the North Saskatchewan River Valley in Edmonton is presented in this paper. The major focus is on kinematics and mechanisms of deep seated landslides in bedrock of the Upper Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation. ...

Near-real-time monitoring of active landslides or landslide-prone hillslopes can provide immediate notification of landslide activity, as well as high-quality data sets for understanding the initiation and movement of landslides. Typical components of ground-based, ...

Geologically and tectonically active Himalayan Range is characterized by highly elevated mountains and deep river valleys. Because of steep mountain slopes, and dynamic geological conditions, large-scale landslides are very common in Lesser and Higher Himalayan ...

<p>Landslides of the flow-type are frequently triggered by rainfall as shallow landslides in different types of soils and geo-environmental contexts. When involving open slopes, these landslides often occur in triangular source areas where initial slides turn ...

The 8 October 2005 Kashmir earthquake triggered several thousand landslides. These were mainly rock falls and debris falls, although translational rock and debris slides also occurred. In addition, a sturzstrom (debris avalanche) comprising ∼80 million m3 ...

Measuring some 2400 km in length, the Himalaya accommodate millions of people in northern India and Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, and parts of other Asian nations. Every year, especially during monsoon rains, landslides and related natural events in these mountains ...

Susceptibility analysis for predicting earthquake-induced landslides has most frequently been done using deterministic methods; multivariate statistical methods have not previously been applied. In this study, however, we introduce a statistical methodology ...
