About this Item

Paperback. 112 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.This book embodies the results of landslide investigation in NW Himalaya, India. Conventionally, landslides are subjected to casual geologic- engineering investigations and recommended bioengineering practices are being employed for the mitigation of landslide hazards. The geologic investigations include the well known observation approach taking into account lithology, topography, catchment characteristics, climate, etc. The current investigation is based on new Observation Approach in landslide research, which is different in concept from the above method in soil mechanics and involves observation of the magnitude of the deformation parameters. This new approach focuses on monitoring of subsurface movements at different sites for landslide hazard assessment. Evaluation of palaeo- strain, petrophysics, and kinematics and sediment characterisation is a new development in this direction. This book provides insights in understanding the landslide mechanism from the viewpoint of these developments in landslide investigation. The students and researchers of earth sciences, engineers, land managers, planners, and others shall benefit from this book This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783844301502

About this title

Synopsis:

This book embodies the results of landslide investigation in NW Himalaya, India. Conventionally, landslides are subjected to casual geologic- engineering investigations and recommended bioengineering practices are being employed for the mitigation of landslide hazards. The geologic investigations include the well known ?observation approach? taking into account lithology, topography, catchment characteristics, climate, etc. The current investigation is based on new ?Observation Approach? in landslide research, which is different in concept from the above method in soil mechanics and involves observation of the magnitude of the deformation parameters. This new approach focuses on monitoring of subsurface movements at different sites for landslide hazard assessment. Evaluation of palaeo- strain, petrophysics, and kinematics and sediment characterisation is a new development in this direction. This book provides insights in understanding the landslide mechanism from the viewpoint of these developments in landslide investigation. The students and researchers of earth sciences, engineers, land managers, planners, and others shall benefit from this book

About the Author:

Dr. Yudhbir Singh and Prof. G. M. Bhat are teaching and conducting research at the Department of Geology, University of Jammu, India. They are working in NW Himalaya on landslides following new ?Observation Approach? in landslide research which involves evaluation of palaeo-strain in combination with petrophysics and sediment characterisation
