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. Placing emphasis on the need to understand the scientific basis of landslide activity together with the legislative and administrative framework and the cultural background. Chapters include: Landslides and risk assessment; Landslide hazard assessment; Probablistic hazard assessment; Consequence assessment; Risk screening; Quantitative risk assessment; Risk acceptance criteria; Risk management; and case examples.
