  • About this book

  • Covers the different types of landslides in cold regions, including those under different geological and geomorphologic conditions
  • Supplies specific methods for landslide monitoring and evaluation for cold regions
  • Presents comprehensive countermeasures for landslides in cold regions
Landslides in cold regions have different mechanisms from those in other areas, and comparatively few research efforts have been made in this field. Recently, because of climate change, some new trends concerning landslide occurrence and motion have appeared, severely impacting economic development and communities. This book collects key case studies from the cold regions all over the world, providing an overview of the general situation.
