Landslides

Torrent
Landslides are widespread in many countries and cause great economic losses, especially when engineering constructions are designed and erected without heeding the stability conditions of the slopes. The types of landslides are closely connected with the geological conditions of the area. Ireland, having a very intricate geological history, is the site of very interesting sliding phenonema. In 2003 a survey of areas affected by sliding illustrates the widespread phenomena. Some of them endanger settlements (human & wildlife), roads, railway lines and public utilities.Therefore,this form has been made in order to help sum up our knowledge of slope stability in a website that will also be GIS enabled and that will provide information on the origin of slope movements, and the methods of their investigation, prevention and control.
