    During the fieldwork several of the features that were identified through image interpretation as potential landslides, were actual bare field or other features. As an additional fact, it is interesting to use night cosmic and aero photos of Moscow that reflect the density of communications and possible damage Figure Mostly the stratigraphical legends of existing geological maps are converted into an engineering geological classification, which gives more information on the rock composition and rock mass strength. It means monitoring organization, slope strength, ban on extra buildings and activity. Unfortunately, the rain gauge data for this event is missing.

    The landslide inventory made in comprises of additional unclassified landslides. The use of wide buffer zones around faults, which is now the standard practice should be treated with caution, as this might be only true for active faults. Management frameworks for landslide hazard and risk: issuesand options M. The committee commends the USGS and AASG for establishing this partnership and suggests that a series of such pilot projects will be necessary to determine optimum approaches to the collection and management of loss data that encompass both the economic and the social consequences of landslides. Thomson He indicated that rockslides and rockfall are very frequent along the cliff coasts, and that most of these slope are considered landslide prone.

    Deposition stage management When the debris flow comes to flat areas, the accumulation of sediments often causes riverbed siltation, elevating the riverbed. Landslide inventory databases should display information on landslide activity, and therefore require multi-temporal landslide information over larger regions. In detailed hazard studies specific engineering geological maps should be collected and rock types should be characterized using field tests and laboratory measurements. The committee agrees that substantially increased funding will be necessary to implement a national landslide hazards mitigation pro- gram.

Landslide risk management book

For visual interpretation of landslides, stereoscopic imagery with a high to very high resolution is required SafeLand, The use of shaded relief images of LiDAR DEMs also allows a much more detailed interpretation of the landslide mechanism as the deformation features within the large landslide are visible, and landslide can be mapped in heavily forested areas Ardizzone et al.

In general, to predict landslides, one must assume that their occurrence is determined by certain geologic factors, and that future landslides will occur under the same conditions as past events. A ha slopeland was devastated by a gigantic rock avalanche, called the Chiu-Fen-Erh-Shan Chiufengershan landslide, near the Nankang village of Kouhsing in Nantou County during the earthquake; the slid materials blocked the confluence of two streams leading to the formation of two landslide dams Figures 13 and Conclusions Risk management is an important way to risk reduction.

Remote sensing techniques and landslides David Petley This can be done using inbuilt drainage pipes in stream beds or in slopes to divert groundwater.

This type of landslide potentially occurs in an tectonic active region like Zagros Mountain in Iran. The use of slope gradient maps in landslide hazard assessment is greatly affected by the resolution of the DEM. The technical development projects cover a board spectrum pertinent to landslide hazard identification, design of landslide mitigation measures and emergency preparedness.

Figure 1 gives an example of the use of multi-temporal satellite images for analysing the changes in landslide distribution and activity over time. Figure Landslide which moved Heart Mountain to its current location, the largest continental landslide discovered so far.

This is usually a result of lower cohesion or higher water content and commonly steeper slopes. Landslides in the Earth system Oliver Korup 3.

Caused massive tsunamis in Doggerland and other countries connected to the North Sea. As the debris moves down the slope it generally follows stream channels leaving a v-shaped scar as it moves down the hill. Instability management from policy to practice R.

Mummery, J-P. Although the proposed actions described above for documenting landslide losses and risks are important and necessary for understanding the consequences of landslides, they should be perceived as one compo- nent of a dual approach.

Muddy-debris flows can start as a result of slope-related factors and shallow landslides can dam stream bedsresulting in temporary water blockage.

Stabilization was unacceptable because of the high cost and impact to the environment. Part of a hill of Devonian shale was removed to make the road, forming a dip-slope. Large amounts of water is one of the main factors that cause debris flows, so excess water must be eliminated to the fullest extent possible.

The historical landslide inventories for Dominica came from the work carried out by J. The upper block detached along a bedding plane and is sliding down the hill, forming a jumbled pile of rock at the toe of the slide.

Given the fact that soil thickness is one of the most crucial factors in deterministic slope stability modeling, it is surprising that very limited work has been done on the modeling of soil thicknesses over larger areas.

Unfortunately, the rain gauge data for this event is missing.Landslide Risk Management comprises the proceedings of the International Conference on Landslide Risk Management, held in Vancouver, Canada, from May 31 to June 3, The first part of the book contains state-of-the-art and invited lectures, prepared by teams of authors selected for their experience in specific topics assigned to them by the JTC-1 Committee.

This book documents the First World Landslide Forum, which was jointly organized by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL), eight UN organizations (UNESCO, WMO, FAO, UN/ISDR, UNU, UNEP, World Bank, UNDP) and four NGOs (International Council for Science, World Federation of Engineering Organizations, Kyoto Univ.
