Landslide Risk Assessment, 2nd edition


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.
