Landslides are among the most widespread geological hazards on earth every year in europe, landslide-related disasters result in fatalities, property losses and environmental degradation the tremendous societal and economical impact of this hazard necessitates the need for measures to mitigate. This list of landslides is a list of notable landslides and mudflows divided into sections by date and type this list is very incomplete as there is no central catalogue for landslides, although some for individual countries/areas do exist.

Hidroituango: another landslide crisis at a hydroelectric dam over the last few days another landslide crisis has occurred at a hydroelectric dam site, this time at the large hidroituango project in colombia this is a very large embankment dam being built across the cauca river near to ituango in antioquia department.
The term landslide or, less frequently, landslip, refers to several forms of mass wasting that include a wide range of ground movements, such as rockfalls, deep-seated slope failures, mudflows and debris flowslandslides can occur underwater, in which case they are called submarine landslides, and in coastal and onshore environments although the action of gravity is the primary driving force. Landslides occur mostly in hilly areas they are usually triggered by an earthquake, flash flood or other major event as the mud slides down the slope, hous. The landslide mitigation action plan was compiled by the washington state department of transportation (wsdot) with participation from the following entities: • design and construct up to six projects in high-priority landslide areas from 2013-2016 to mitigate landslide problems and improve service reliability. Landslide reporter is a citizen science project to build open global landslide data for science and decision-making. Landslide is a european project, financed by dg humanitarian aid and civil protection of the european commission, with the aim to develop an innovative risk assessment tool to predict and evaluate landslide hazards.
Yesterday a small landslide at the hidroituango dam site led to the evacuation of some of the workers on the site operations continue to manage the situation whilst waiting for the end of the rainy season, and an expected fall in the river level. A landslide is a natural disaster, something which is unavoidable landslides can vary in size but usually they always involve a large ground movement a landslide may occur on shore or off shore and usually at coastal lines a landslide is the movement of rock, debris or earth down a slope. Our project practice shows that the key factors for landslides are not only complicated but also dynamic they are changing with landslide development thus, a landslide movement is always in a dynamic balance as shown in fig 2. Landslide hazard and risk management invariably as maps of hazard and susceptibility showing zones in a number of categories depending on the needs of the project and the project goals for example, the degree of hazard and susceptibility may be classified in five categories as very high, high moderate, low and very low. A landslide happens when soil, debris, and rock move down a slope, which can be either fast or very slow the morphology , or structure of the land itself, along with erosion, can cause the land.
The gold basin landslide is located along the south fork stillaguamish river, within the mount baker-snoqualmie national forest in western washington state recent concerns related to slope stability after the 2014 state route 530 landslide near oso, washington, forced the closure of the us forest. Note: this is an abbreviated project idea, without notes to start your background research, a specific list of materials, or a procedure for how to do the experiment you can identify abbreviated project ideas by the asterisk at the end of the title if you want a project idea with full instructions, please pick one without an asterisk. 3 landslide types and causes first define the objective of the study danger exists that the data that will be collected will not be in accordance with the scale of analysis, or the method of analysis. Landslide disaster management project ‐ reducing landslide disaster damage in armenia through the formulation of a comperehensive landslide disaster management plan and implementation of measures on the basis of results of investigation. Landslide multi-hazard risk assessment, preparedness and early warning in south asia integrating meteorology, landscape and society (landslip) this site is hosted by the british geological survey but responsibility for the content of the site lies with the landslip project, not with the british geological survey.
Project implementation the landslide hazard map can contribute to planning for a project's implementation there are two situations when this map may prove beneficial, both of which are related to mitigating the potential effects of landslides in one case, it is conceivable that if areas identified with a moderate landslide hazard are. The tree ring work represents one project within the working group, which focuses on a general understanding of landslides in the cascadia region the past as uncertain prologue. The nedies project (natural and environmental disaster information exchange system) of in this report, lessons learnt from landslide disasters recently occurred in eu member states and accession countries are discussed with the aim to exchange information and lessons learnt from landslide disasters in europe (” -----):.
Landslide mitigation – how to reduce the effects of landslides: vulnerability to landslide hazards is a function of location, type of human activity, use, and frequency of landslide events the effects of landslides on people and structures can be lessened by total avoidance of landslide hazard areas or by restricting, prohibiting, or. Challenge over 2 million people in central and western japan have been forced from their homes by floods and landslides search and rescue teams are sifting through mud and debris to recover bodies and transporting people to safer areas. The costa rica landslide awareness project is a multimedia project involving graduate students from the un university for peace (upeace), costa rica the aim of this project is to raise awareness and draw attention to a series of aspects related to landslides and natural disasters.
