<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, ...

Eight recent worldwide earthquakes were studied and integrated into the investigation of earthquakes and the distribution of triggered landslides. In order to achieve this, comparisons were made with previously defined relationships between earthquake characteristics ...

<p>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 ...

Tidal triggering evidence of intermediate earthquakes in the Vrancea region (Romania) is investigated. The Vrancea seismic zone is located in the bend region of the South-Eastern Carpathians (45◦–46◦ N, 25.5◦–27.5◦E) and is known as one of the most active ...

Cliff collapse commonly initiates a sequence of rockfall events over a time span of days to years. Wieczorek and Snyder (1999) nicely document three such events in 7 months above Curry Village in Yosemite valley (Fig. 7). None were earthquake induced. The ...
