Swiss-wide, standardized information on natural hazards that threaten national roads (highways) are not available. The Swiss federal roads office (FEDRO) therefore decided to initiate a four year project, aiming at quantifying and mapping all risks due to ...

The travel angles of landslides are important parameter in risk analyses. Here we examine the first use of the concept in Canada, applied to the Frank slide. We also report on travel angles of an additional 61 long runout landslides in the Canadian Cordillera, ...

Landslides from massive rock slope failure (MRSF) are a major geological hazard in many parts of the world. Hazard assessment is made difficult by a variety of complex initial failure processes and unpredictable post-failure behaviour, which includes transformation ...
