Contenido Landslide Risk Assessment

Landslide Risk Assessment provides guidance to practitioners on establishing the likelihood and extent to which future slope failures could adversely impact society and affect people and property.

The only book to focus on risk and landslides, using examples from across the globe, Landslide Risk Assessment examines a variety of approaches to landslide risk assessment and management, introducing the key challenges that practitioners will need to overcome: estimating the probability and consequences of landsliding, combining these to develop a measure of the risk, and making the transition between risk assessment and risk management.

The second edition has been extensively remodelled and expanded to give greater consideration to the nature of risk and future uncertainties and challenges,
emphasising the importance of identifying and valuing the full range of potential consequences of landslides in addition to understanding the nature and extent of the
landslide threat. The importance of collaboration between specialists from a variety of backgrounds for effective landslide risk studies is detailded and greater
coverage given to landslide risk assessments applied to pipeline developments and submarine locations

Landside Risk Assessment

- Provides the tools needed to analyse whether the risk of landslide is significant enough for intervention to be required

- Is clearly researched,structured,written and referenced for applied work,adding subtantial practical value in application to the development and structuring of
  your own applied analysis

- Provides a wide range of techniques and uses case studies extensively to illustrate the different approaches that are available at each stage of the risk assessment
  process,to aid the reader to put theory into practice and address particular issues on their own projects

- Is the authoritative text and learning aid on landslide risk,providing essential background knowledge for use as past of teaching,research and consultancy

Landsilde Risk Assessment is an essential reference for all practitioners,including planners,engineers,project managers, health and safety officers,risk analysts
geomorphologists engineering geologist,hydrologists,foresters,environmental consultants and geoscientist as well a teaching aid for lectures,teaching on
landslide hazard/risk modules,and their students
