Landslides and how to fix the problems

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Recently the USGS has published and excellent guide: The Landslide Handbook - A Guide to Understanding Landslides by Lynn M. Highland, United States Geological Survey, and Peter Bobrowsky, Geological Survey of Canada.

This is a very useful guide in EnglishSpanish,and Portuguese . Vetiver gets some mention.  Note recently some very good landslide rehab work was carried out in Brazil using VS,  See this paper.
