A landslide is a geological phenomenon which includes a wide range of ground movement, such as rock falls, deep failure of slopes and shallow debris flows, which can occur in offshore, coastal and onshore environments. Although the action of gravity is the primary driving force for a landslide to occur, there are other contributing factors affecting the original slope stability. Typically, pre-conditional factors build up specific sub-surface conditions that make the area/slope prone to failure, whereas the actual landslide often requires a trigger before being released. This book discusses such triggers, as well as their outcomes. Studies of landslides that have occurred in various geographical settings are also among the topics examined in this book, as well as an analysis of the factors that caused them.

Based on contributions to the first General Assembly of the International Consortium on Landslides, this reference and status report emphasizes the mechanisms of different types of landslides, landslide risk analysis, and sustainable disaster management. It comprises the achievements of the ICL over the past three years, since the Kyoto assembly. It consists of three parts: research results of the International Programme on Landslides (IPL); contributions on landslide risk analysis; and articles on sustainable disaster management. In addition, the history of the ICL activities (under the support of UNESCO, WMO, FAO, UN/ISDR, and UNU) is recounted to create a comprehensive overview of international activity on landslides. The contributions reflect a wide range of topics and concerns, randing from field studies, identification of objects of cultural heritage at landslide risk, as well as landslide countermeasures.

This volume is the second in the new Safety and Security Engineering series that is designed to provide a comprehensive view on risk mitigation. This volume is devoted to landslides and debris flow, addressing the need for a better understanding of these increasingly frequent phenomena. With better understanding comes a greater ability to manage the attendant risk.The present volume contains selected research papers presented at Wessex Institute of Technology Conferences. The book will be a valuable reference for professionals, scientists, and managers concerned with prediction and management of the risk of landslides and debris flows.

This book assembles most of the works presented at the International Workshop on Extreme Rainfall Induced Landslides, held in Rio de Janeiro 11-15 February 2012, in response to the landslide disaster which occurred in the Serrana Region of Rio de Janeiro one year before, and also other disasters in the states of Santa Catarina, São Paulo, Pernambuco, Alagoas, and Minas Gerais. The workshop brought together great landslide experts from all around the world, and the outcome was a Final Report sent to competent governmental Brazilian authorities. The presentations, discussions and lessons learned highlighted the urgency of governmental actions to incentivize scientific and technological researches, aiming to accelerate the methodological development in order to avoid, reduce and mitigate the hazardous consequences of these natural disasters.
