The article discusses a few points emerging from the paper "Expected Damage From Displacement of Slow-Moving Slides," by M. F. Mansour et al. The paper presents a list of published cases concerning slow-moving slides and their interaction with man-made works. It reports on two schematic diagrams that focused on the three basic phases of creep.

    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...

    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...
