Geomorphology and natural hazards

Auteurs :
GERRARD, J.
MORISAWA, M.

Description :
This paper analyses relationships between landsliding and geology in the Himalayas and will use such relationships to assess the nature of the natural/human-induced landsliding conundrum. This account will draw heavily on previously published results but the assessment will also be based on the Author's experiment working in the Darjeeling region of northeast India, the Kumaun Himalayas of northwest India, and 3 years involvement in a land use, soil conservation, and water resource management project in the Middle Hills, Nepal.
