<p>The 2011 rupture of previously undetected blind faults beneath Christchurch, New Zealand, in moment magnitude (Mw) 6.2 and 6.0 earthquakes triggered major rockfalls that caused fatalities and infrastructure damage. Here we use field, geospatial, seismologic, ...

The purpose of this pilot study was to develop a methodology to assess risk to life from cliff collapse. The report considers cliff collapse triggered by earthquakes and other causes, and expresses risk as annual individual fatality risk. The risk to life, ...

The purpose of this pilot study was to develop a methodology to assess risk to life from rockfall (boulder roll). The risk is expressed as the annual individual fatality risk. Rockfall triggered by earthquakes and other mechanisms such as rainfall is considered. ...

<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 ...
<p>Landslides are one of the most damaging earthquake geohazard phenomena that have created considerable socio-economic losses in the past. Therefore, it is important to find out where and in what shaking conditions landslide can occur. This paper assesses ...

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 ...

In the epicentral areas of major recent earthquakes, landslide density scales with peak ground acceleration. Topographic site effects on seismic waves are known to cause important gradients in ground acceleration in individual mountain ridges. Using landslide ...
