Environmental geo hazards are of upmost concern today as there is huge loss to life and property. The concern varies from individual to the state government. Government has set up many scientific department has set up many scientific departments to carry out research and development programmes on geo hazards. Teh findings of scientific studies have been helpful in mitigating the impact of geo hazards. The most disastrous impact has been of the earthquakes. Although they occur rarely but their teacher and time of occurrence is not known. It is one of the most challenging job to the scientific community. Therefore the focus is on post management strategy. Along with natural factors human beings are responsible for triggering landslides. Unscientific and haphazardous development in Himalayas have been the root cause of disastrous landslides. Flashfloods are becoming very common phenomena in Himalayas due to heavy rainfalled cloudburst. Many efforts. Seller Inventory # 59205
