Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice contains the invited lectures and all papers presented at the 12th International Symposium on Landslides, (Naples, Italy, 12-19 June 2016). The book aims to emphasize the relationship between landslides and other natural hazards. Hence, three of the main sessions focus on Volcanic-induced landslides, Earthquake-induced landslides and Weather-induced landslides respectively, while the fourth main session deals with Human-induced landslides. Some papers presented in a special session devoted to "Subareal and submarine landslide processes and hazard” and in a “Young Session” complete the books. Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice underlines the importance of the classic approach of modern science, which moves from experience to theory, as the basic instrument to study landslides. Experience is the key to understand the natural phenomena focusing on all the factors that play a major role. Theory is the instrument to manage the data provided by experience following a mathematical approach; this allows not only to clarify the nature and the deep causes of phenomena but mostly, to predict future and, if required, manage similar events. Practical benefits from the results of theory to protect people and man-made works. Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice is useful to scientists and practitioners working in the areas of rock and soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering, engineering geology and geology.

Landslides represent one of the most destructive natural catastrophes. They can reach extremely long distances and velocities, and are capable of wiping out human communities and settlements. Yet landslides have a creative facet as they contribute to the modification of the landscape. They are the consequence of the gravity pull jointly with the tectonic disturbance of our living planet. Landslides are most often studied within a geotechnical and geomorphological perspective. Engineering calculations are traditionally applied to the stability of terrains. In this book, landslides are viewed as a physical phenomenon. A physical understanding of landslides is a basis for modeling and mitigation and for understanding their flow behavior and dynamics. We still know relatively little about many aspects of landslide physics. It is only recently that the field of landslide dynamics is approaching a more mature stage. This is testified by the release of modelling tools for the simulation of landslides and debris flows. In this book the emphasis is placed on the problems at the frontier of landslide research. Each chapter is self-consistent, with questions and arguments introduced from the beginning.

Impacts of landslides range from site destruction, through problems for the maintenance of buildings and infrastructure, to an impediment for economic development. Previous attempts to address landslide risk have either treated components of the problem in isolation or characterised the wider issue from just a single discipline perspective. This book takes a holistic view of landslide hazard and risk through the development of integrated approaches to analysis, perception and management. Landslide Hazard and Risk brings together a wide range of experience, covering the social, economic and cultural context, management options, and the application of science and technology, for the reduction of risk from landslides. This book is divided into four major parts covering conceptual models in approaching landslide risk, evaluation of risk, management of risk and end-to-end solutions of risk. It examines risk assessment and management from theory to practice, from conventional methodology to future possibilities. Provides a range of multidisciplinary approaches and guidance on their appropriate use. Presents specifications and contexts for the next generation of process models. Focuses on the means and methods of investigation, and the treatment of data to represent the probabilities and uncertainties of hazard and risk. Evaluates state-of-the-art techniques and future directions. This book is essential reading for professionals and practitioners in landscape, watershed and hazard management, as well as risk analysts, geomorphologists, hydrologists, foresters and environmental consultants. Would be excellent background reading for researchers and graduate students interested in landslides, hazards, risk assessment and slope stability in Departments of Geography, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Civil Engineering and Planning.
