- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00
This book reports on investigations which were carried out to monitor and analyse landslide characteristics in the Swabian Alb region, and to develop a prototype early warning system and a decision support system allowing for quick calculation of stability. more...

There is a crack in the earth?s crust that runs roughly 31 miles offshore, approximately 683 miles from Northern California up through Vancouver Island off the coast of British Columbia. The Cascadia Subduction Zone has generated massive earthquakes over and over again throughout geologic time—at least thirty-six major events in the last 10,000 years.... more...

Scientists have identified Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver as the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake?the Really Big One?in the continental United States. A quake will happen--in fact it's actually overdue. The Cascadia subduction zone is 750 miles long, running along the Pacific coast from Northern California up to southern British... more...

Subduction zones, one of the three types of plate boundaries, return Earth's surface to its deep interior.

Consequently, subduction zones generate Earth's largest earthquakes and most... more...

Seismicity is a major trigger for landslides with often devastating effects. The Japan Landslide Society (JLS) therefore organized a meeting fully dedicated to the research area of earthquake induced landslides. The symposium covers all aspects of earthquake-induced landslides including the phenomena occurred in manmade embankments as well as in natural... more...
