Landslide Risk Assessment

Landslide Risk Assessment

Landslide Risk Assessment

Over the past decade there has been a gradual shift away from simply relying on engineering solutions to individual landslide problems, to the use of a variety of strategies to manage the problems over a broad area. Such alternative strategies include the use of building codes, land use planning controls, preventing water leakage, early warning systems and insurance schemes.This book addresses these developments and provides a multidisciplinary perspective on landslide management.

Landslide Risk Management

Landslide Risk Management

Landslide Risk Management comprises the proceedings of the International Conference on Landslide Risk Management, held in Vancouver, Canada, from May 31 to June 3, 2005. The first part of the book contains state-of-the-art and invited lectures, prepared by teams of authors selected for their experience in specific topics assigned to them by the JTC-1 Committee. The second part is a selection of papers submitted to the conference, most of which serve as case-history illustrations of projects on landslide risk management. This reference work presents the current status of landslide risk management as viewed by experts from around the world.

Landslide Hazard And Risk

Landslide Hazard And Risk

With the increasing need to take an holistic view of landslide hazard and risk, this book overviews the concept of risk research and addresses the sociological and psychological issues resulting from landslides. Its integrated approach offers understanding and ability for concerned organisations, landowners, land managers, insurance companies and researchers to develop risk management solutions. Global case studies illustrate a variety of integrated approaches, and a concluding section provides specifications and contexts for the next generation of process models.

Landslide Databases As Tools For Integrated Assessment Of Landslide Risk

Landslide Databases As Tools For Integrated Assessment Of Landslide Risk

This doctoral thesis presents a novel approach to landslide risk assessment that explores the various dimensions of landslide risk in an integrated perspective. The research approach introduced here is tailored for use with landslide databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A landslide susceptibility model is at the heart of this new approach, enabling to identify and delineate areas at risk of landslides and to assess infrastructure exposure. Landslide risk is a pressing societal issue that is still poorly understood. Temporal landslide hazard is derived from landslide frequency statistics and a hydrological simulation approach to estimate triggering thresholds. These methods are integrated into a powerful toolset for cost modeling that uses historical data to compile, model, and extrapolate damage costs on different spatial scales over time. The combination of this toolset with techniques to analyze fiscal cost impacts supports integrated risk assessment by quantifying the economic relevance of landslide losses.

Partnerships For Reducing Landslide Risk

Partnerships For Reducing Landslide Risk

Landslides occur in all geographic regions of the nation in response to a wide range of conditions and triggering processes that include storms, earthquakes, and human activities. Landslides in the United States result in an estimated average of 25 to 50 deaths annually and cost $1 to 3 billion per year. In addition to direct losses, landslides also cause significant environmental damage and societal disruption. Partnerships for Reducing Landslide Risk reviews the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS)National Landslide Hazards Mitigation Strategy, which was created in response to a congressional directive for a national approach to reducing losses from landslides. Components of the strategy include basic research activities, improved public policy measures, and enhanced mitigation of landslides. This report commends the USGS for creating a national approach based on partnerships with federal, state, local, and non-governmental entities, and finds that the plan components are the essential elements of a national strategy. Partnerships for Reducing Landslide Risk recommends that the plan should promote the use of risk analysis techniques, and should play a vital role in evaluating methods, setting standards, and advancing procedures and guidelines for landslide hazard maps and assessments. This report suggests that substantially increased funding will be required to implement a national landslide mitigation program, and that as part of a 10-year program the funding mix should transition from research and guideline development to partnership-based implementation of loss reduction measures.

Landslide Risk

Landslide Risk

A landslide is a major geological hazard, which poses a serious threat to the global human population and various infrastructures like highways, rail routes and civil structures like dams, buildings and others.Landslides occur very often during other major natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and volcanoes.The word "landslide" represents only a type of movement that is a slide. However, it is generally used as a term to cover all the types of land movements including falls, creeps, spreads, flows and other complex movements.Geological risk is a relatively new and not fully explored concept. There are many definitions of geological risk. Oftentimes, a scientific study or a scientific approach to the problem begins with a presentation of the author's position and the choice of the definition of geological risk for this problem. One of the most common approaches defines risk as the expectation of the damage, or the product of the probability of possible hazardous events on the damage produced.The problem with landslide risk management is that it is seen as a series of events leading to landslide risk reduction. It includes landslide monitoring, mapping, landslide forecast, engineering, slope strengthening, insurance and others. Strictly speaking, geological risk management includes:1.

Floods And Landslides Integrated Risk Assessment

Floods And Landslides Integrated Risk Assessment

A review of such natural disasters as floods and landslides, highlighting the possibility of safe and correct land planning and management by means of a global approach to territory. Since the events deriving from slope and fluvial dynamics are commonly triggered by the same factor, occur at the same time and are closely related, this book analyses floods and slope stability phenomena as different aspects of the same dynamic system: the drainage basin.
