The development is going on a fast pace which calls for the need of landslide susceptibility zonation studies in order to generate maps that can be used by planners and engineers to implement the projects at safer locations.

    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 first: 1. Landslide Inventory and Susceptibility and Hazard Zoning, 2. Submissions are encouraged to cover a broad range of topics on the various applications of remote sensing techniques, which may include, but are not limited to, the following topics: (i) mapping and analysis of landslide conditioning and triggering factors, (ii) supplement of data for landslide hazard models, (iii) landslide motion detection.

Commission on Landslides and Other Mass. The exercises that you are going to do have the following objectives: − To give you an understanding of the various phases needed in a landslide hazard zonation project − To allow you to study. Landslide inventory maps show landslide locations and might show the dimensions and geographical extent of each landslide.

One clue to the location of future landsliding is the distribution of past movement, so maps that show the location and size of landslides.

The first evaluation of engineering geological data and the geographical distribution of the recorded cases led to the determination of most critical landslide prone geological formations, regarding lithology and structure and to a landslide hazard map compilation at a national by: The developed landslide hazard zonation maps show satisfactory agreement with the landslide inventory of the study area.

Statistically integrating weightages from these thematic maps, a specific landslide hazard map was developed on a GIS platform.

The resulting landslide hazard zonation map delineates the area into different zones of six classes of landslide hazard zones i.e. Landslides exist throughout Washington State and can be triggered in many ways. Rainfall —Prolonged or intense rainfall and rain-on-snow events can saturate soils and trigger landslides.

Earthquakes —Intense shaking during earthquakes can cause the ground to fail. The earthquakes of, and the Nisqually earthquake of produced.

The landslide hazard zonation (LHZ) map is an important tool for designers, field engineers, and geologists to classify the land surface into zones of varying degree of hazards based on the estimated significance of causative factors that influence stability.

The book covers all of the commonly used classification methods including: Barton. The landslide hazard zonation map is an important tool for designers and planners to identify the vulnerable sites and plan the infrastructural development accordingly.

BIS (ISPart-2, ) landslide hazard zonation procedure is based on landslide hazard evaluation factor rating scheme for different causative factors such as lithology Cited by: 1.

Weighted least squares techniques are proposed for the zonation of landslide hazard using those unique condition subareas. The traditional pixel-based multivariate regression model becomes a special case of the proposed weighted regression model based on the unique condition by: Landslide disaster in the new county seat of Badong is serious in the Three Gorges reservoir area.

Material composition and historical environment before the oc. The assessment of landslide hazard and preparation of landslide hazard zonation map is an imperative task in the area of disaster management.

There are many methods used by several workers in different parts of the globe. In most of the techniques though input parameters are mostly the same, they differ in ranking the factors.
