    Landslide mitigation refers to several man-made activities on slopes with the goal of lessening the effect of ides can be triggered by many, sometimes concomitant causes. In addition to shallow erosion or reduction of shear strength caused by seasonal rainfall, landslides may be triggered by anthropic activities, such as adding excessive weight above the slope, .

LANDSLIDES: INVESTIGATION AND MITIGATION. CHAPTER 3 - LANDSLIDE TYPES AND PROCESSES. The range of landslide processes is reviewed in this chapter, and a vocabulary is provided for describing the features of landslides relevant to their classification for avoidance, control, or remediation.

Abstract. Coseismic landslides are important effects of strong earthquakes and one of the most poorly understood. Such landslides are driven by inertial forces acting on slopes and can vary in size from individual rock blocks of a few m 3 in volume to catastrophic rock avalanches of many Mm 3, which can claim many thousands of capability of an earthquake to trigger a.
