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.

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.

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.

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.

Landslides and Their Control provides information on slope stability; the origin of slope movements; and methods on how they are investigated, controlled, and prevented. The book covers topics such as soil and rock mechanics; the influence of ground water on landslides; as well as other factors that produce sliding movement. The book also includes the different types of landslides as well as examples from different territories; its investigation, interpretation of stability, and stability analysis; and corrective measures involved. The monograph is recommended for geologists who would like to know more about the nature of landslides and how they can be prevented, especially those who work in service for the government.
