BeschreibungThis book presents current progress in landslide science and consists of four parts: progress in landslide science, landslide dynamics, landslide monitoring, and landslide risk assessment. It provides useful information to those working on landslide risk-mitigation planning. It can be also used as an introductory textbook for college students who wish to learn fundamental scientific achievements in the field of landslide disaster reduction.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews: "Landslides are common in many parts of the world and account for as many fatalities as do earthquakes and volcanic hazards. ... Progress in Landslide Science is an international collection of review articles, which provides an impressive summary of the present state of studies. ... The volume is attractively produced, providing many color photographs and figures in each chapter. It also contains a comprehensive table of contents and a useful set of up-to-date references for each chapter. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (N. Caine, CHOICE, Vol. v4 (3), November, 2007) "This book compiles findings from recent research works on landslides. ... there are two appendices at the end of the book that include further information about some general issues related to landslides ... . The editors are congratulated for their great effort on getting this multi-author book well organised and edited. ... Landslide researchers and practitioners may find this book useful for updating and validating their knowledge. It is recommended to keep as a reference book for landslide specialists."
