This book presents current progress in landslide science and consists of four parts: progress in landslide science, landslide dynamics, landslide monitoring, and landslide risk assessment. It provides useful information to academics, practitioners, and government officers working on landslide risk-mitigation planning. This book can be also used as an introductory textbook for college students who wish to learn fundamental scientific achievements in the field of landslide disaster reduction.
