A landslide occurred on the morning of December 16, 2013, in Liujiabao village, Tianshui City, Gansu Province, China. The 260,000 m3 of landslide material traveled a distance of 190 m downslope and damaged a village road and several farmhouses before it stopped on the middle of the slope. These landslide materials are still threatening the lives and property of people in the downslope residential areas. A field survey revealed that this landslide was strongly affected by the geological setting… 

The fault-controlled Chengtian landslide triggered by rainfall on 20 May 2021 in Songyang County, Zhejiang Province, China

The geological structures of fault zones control the occurrence of landslides and determine their characteristics and motion styles, especially in igneous rock areas with high rock strength. On 20

Trigger mechanism of loess-mudstone landslides inferred from ring shear tests and numerical simulation

Whereas loess-mudstone landslides are widely distributed and frequently occurred at the loess Plateau, this type of landslides is hard to detect due to its particularity, and easily generates serious

Three-dimensional geological structures and sliding factors and modes of loess landslides

Loess environments such as the Chinese Loess Plateau are geologically fragile because of their great thickness, loose structure, crisscrossing ravines and gullies, broken terrain, dry climate, severe

Stability and deformation of Xiaozhuang landslide: A large-scale creeping landslide in Gansu, China

Information about the long-term spatiotemporal evolution of landslides can improve our understanding of the landslide development process and can help prevent landslide disasters. This paper

Numerical investigation of the recent Chenhecun landslide (Gansu, China) using the discrete element method

Loess–mudstone landslides are widely distributed in Northwest China. However, the deformation features and kinematic processes of these landslides are still not well understood. The Chenhecun

Research on Internal Structure and Mechanism of Landslide Based on Hydrogeophysical Investigation (Quan’an Landslide, Southwest China)

The survey area is located in the planning area of Longquan national urban park, with frequent human activities, numerous water conservancy, transportation projects, and frequent geological disasters

An Inventory of Large-Scale Landslides in Baoji City, Shaanxi Province, China

Landslides are a typical geological hazard that endangers people’s lives and property in the Loess Plateau. The destructiveness of large-scale landslides, in particular, is incalculable. For example,

Analysis of a spatial distribution of landslides triggered by the 2004 Chuetsu earthquakes of Niigata Prefecture, Japan

On October 23, 2004, a series of powerful earthquakes with a maximum Mw = 6.6 located near the western coast of northern Honshu struck parts of northern Japan, particularly Niigata Prefecture; these


Due to the extremely high magnitude,long duration of vibration and the complicated geo-environment in disastrous area,the Wenchuan 8.0 earthquake produces not only a huge number of landslides and
