We analyzed a combination of airborne and terrestrial LiDAR, high-resolution photography, seismic, and acoustic data in order to gain insights into the initiation, dynamics, and talus deposition of a complex rock fall. A large (46 700 m<sup>3</sup>) rock fall ...

<p>Results from studies into long-term changes in soil pore and moisture characteristics on land restored after surface mining in the UK will be presented. Recolonisation of soils by earthworms is a key factor in developing a new macro-pore system but in its ...

This paper deals both with specific water-related problems, such as abrupt land subsidence that results in sinkholes and 'water logging' of the land in urban areas due to a rising water table, and with general topics of broad public interest, such as this ...
