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. and Japan Landslide Society) in Tokyo in Correction of an existing landslide or the prevention of a pending landslide is a function of a reduction in the driving forces or an increase in the available resisting forces. Any remedial measure used must involve one or both of the above by:

As an Engineering Geologist this book is an invaluable resource. As the title implies it covers all aspects of landslides from investigation to mitigation as Landslides/landslide mitigation book as current terminology and some insightful case is a well written book with a good selection of diagrams to support and enhance the text.5/5(3).
Part II is a cross section dealing with recent significant landslides related to a single storm, intense rainfall, possible errors in the identification of and development on an existing or paleolandslide, and the use of pumping wells and horizontal drains to dewater slope failures.

This death toll is the largest from a single landslide in North American history. landslide mitigation—how to reduce the effects of landslides Vulnerability to landslide hazards is a function of location, type of human activity, use, and frequency of landslide events.
The effects of landslides on people and structures can be lessened by total avoidance of landslide hazard areas or by restricting, prohibiting, or imposing. A landslide occurs wh en stability conditions of the slope is disturbed either by the increase of stress imposed on the slope and / or by the decrease in strength of the e arth material.
Landslides in Practice combines clearly written descriptions and real-life case histories in an authoritative, practical guide to landslide investigation, evaluation, and mitigation design.

Unconditional causality in landsliding, where an earlier landslide is necessary and sufficient to cause a later landslide, can probably only be established for landslides that immediately follow. Regardless of the catalyst, landslides are an important disaster management consideration, and Southern California has a landslide mitigation effort in place.
What’s intriguing, however, is that the effort is linked to earthquakes rather than to the more prevalent aftermath of heavy rains.

The book contains a wealth of the latest information on all aspects of theory, practices and modelling tools and techniques involved in prediction, prevention, monitoring, mitigation and risk analysis of landslide hazards.

Geological causes of landslides include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and soil and rock erosion.
The largest geological landslideis the volcanic eruption of Mount St. Helens in This landslide tumbled down the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington state at miles an hour. Get this from a library. Landslides/landslide mitigation. [James E Slosson; Arthur G Keene; Jeffrey A Johnson;] -- This book provides a variety of case histories; methods to identify, quantify, and mitigate landslides; and recent legal cases affecting engineering geology.
Assessing landslide causes is useful for hazard analysis, mitigation of slope instability, and for considering the role of landslides in landscape systems and evolution. Geological and geomorphological conditions (e.g., material type, strength and structure, and slope angle) predispose slopes to failure; knowledge of these conditions can help.
Multilevel flow systems (perched water tables) commonly form within compound landslides due to the relatively low permeability of slip-surface gouge, which may slow recharge from the overlying secondary landslides to the host landslide.
This book contains peer-reviewed papers from the Second World Landslide Forum, organised by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL), that took place in September The entire material from the conference has been split into seven volumes, this one is the sixth: 1.
