    Based on the analysis of 51 case studies of large rapid rock slides, for a landslide to travel rapidly after failure there has to be a significant loss of strength on the basal surface of rupture, lateral margins, and (or) internally within the slide mass, or the factor of safety has to be...

    The Todagin Creek landslide is located at 57.61° N 129.98° W in Northwest British Columbia. A seismic station 90 km north of the landslide recorded the event at 1643 hours coordinated universal time (UTC; 0943 hours Pacific daylight time (PDT)) on October 3, 2006. The signal verifies the...

    We can define a landslide as the movement of rock, detritus, or soils caused by the action of gravity. It occurs often following torrential rain or earthquake, and even volcanic eruptions can lead to landsliding. Landslides are a major form of geohazard that cause millions of dollars of damage...

    Only a few studies have investigated the geographical and temporal variations in the frequency and distribution of rainfall-induced landslides, and the consequences of the variations on landslide risk. Lack of information limits the possibility to evaluate the impact of environmental and climate...

    This work proposes a methodology to compare the forecasting effectiveness of different rainfall threshold models for landslide forecasting. We tested our methodology with two state-of-the-art models, one using intensity-duration thresholds and the other based on cumulative rainfall thresholds....

    A rainfall-induced shallow landslide is a major hazard in mountainous terrain, but a time-space based approach is still an unsettled issue for mapping rainfall-induced shallow landslide hazards. Rain induces a rise of the groundwater level and an increase in pore water pressure that results in...

    Landslide investigation in the center part of loess plateau reflects that most of large-scale old and ancient landslides lie on river terraces at different heights, but the small ones usually occur along the sides of V-shaped loess valleys, which implies that there is an inherent connection...

    Multi-spectral imagery has great potential for the detection and delineation of landslides in temperate areas due to its ability to show changes in surface material properties. In this study, an assessment of the best band combination of the eleven-band Airborne Thematic Mapper (ATM) imagery for...
