  • Numerous new photos taken at the time of the 2011 disaster of the Great Tohoku and Kanto Earthquake in Japan which are very significant for future disaster managements in the world
  • Includes special reports for the activities performed by the Earthquake-Induced Landslides Special Research Project in the Japan Landslide Society
  • Presents the proceedings from the first international conference handling earthquake-induced landslides
Seismicity is a major trigger for landslides with often devastating effects. The Japan Landslide Society (JLS) therefore organized a meeting fully dedicated to the research area of earthquake induced landslides. The symposium covers all aspects of earthquake-induced landslides including the phenomena occurred in manmade embankments as well as in natural slopes in mountainous areas. In this comprehensive volume on landslide science the JLS presents the Proceedings of this First International Symposium on Earthquake-Induced Landslides, held in November 2012 in Kiryu, Japan.
