USGS Response to an Urban Earthquake -- Northridge ' Landslides -- Common and Unexpected Effects Documenting the Landslides and Their Effects. The earthquake caused tens of thousands of landslides over an area of 10, square kilometers. The landslides destroyed dozens of homes, blocked roads, disrupted pipe and powerlines, and blocked streams.

    If a subsequent future landslide were to occur in the area of these large landslide complexes, a tsunami would probably result. Runup distances of 10 m over a km-long stretch of the Santa Barbara coastline are predicted for a recurrence of the Goleta slide, and a runup of 3 m over a comparable stretch of the Los Angeles coastline is modeled. Influence of rainfall and ancient landslide deposits on recent landslides () in urban areas of Contra Costa County, Californiania (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Tor Helge Nilsen; Barbara L Turner; Geological Survey (U.S.). When development is permitted in areas at risk of landslides, the best practices described here can mitigate losses, an important consideration given the lack of insurance for landslide losses. The report also explains remedial tactics for landslide areas where development already exists and regulatory tools for preventing development or Format: Paperback.

    Petrópolis had risk areas mapped, distributed across the Southern region of the municipality, around the urban area, with 98% of these areas associated with the risk of landslides. The remainder is related to the risk of flooding in the central area, along the Quitandinha by: 7. Urbanisation and landslides: hazard drivers and better practices based surface water drainage is affordable and effective in mitigating urban landslides. New evidence presented in this paper.   When development is permitted in areas at risk of landslides, the best practices described here can mitigate losses, an important consideration given the lack of insurance for landslide losses. The report also explains remedial tactics for landslide areas where development already exists and regulatory tools for preventing development or.
