The Kentucky Geological Survey is compiling a landslide inventory database to better document the distribution and geologic context of Kentucky’s landslides. The database provides users with easy access to landslide information, raises awareness of landslide causes, and will help prevent property damage or injury. The database was used to create an online landslide information map, which provides online access to landslide data and gives users the ability to customize the map using other data… 
Landslide Inventory and Susceptibility Models, Prestonsburg 7.5-min Quadrangle, Kentucky, USA
The Cumberland Plateau of eastern Kentucky is a forested and landslide prone area dominated by narrow ridges, steep slopes, and, in many places, terrain disturbed by past and current coal mining. The
Landslides across the USA: occurrence, susceptibility, and data limitations
Detailed information about landslide occurrence is the foundation for advancing process understanding, susceptibility mapping, and risk reduction. Despite the recent revolution in digital elevation
Landslide Inventory (2001-2017) of Chittagong Hilly Areas, Bangladesh
Landslides are a frequent natural hazard in Chittagong Hilly Areas (CHA), Bangladesh, which causes the loss of lives and damage to the economy. Despite this, an o cial landslide inventory is still
Using landslide-inventory mapping for a combined bagged-trees and logistic-regression approach to determining landslide susceptibility in eastern Kentucky, USA
High-resolution LiDAR-derived datasets from a 1.5 m digital elevation model and a detailed landslide inventory (n ≥ 1000) for Magoffin County, Kentucky, USA were used to develop a combined
Assessment of active landslides using field electrical measurements.
Abstract Landslide characterization and hazard assessments require multidisciplinary approaches that connect geologic processes with geotechnical parameters. Preexisting landslide activity, geology
Geologic, Geotechnical, and Geophysical Investigation of a Shallow Landslide, Eastern Kentucky
Shallow colluvial landslides are common in eastern Kentucky, as well as in the east-central Appalachian region. A geological, geotechnical, and geophysical investigation was carried out for a shallow
Frequency and Magnitude of Selected Historical Landslide Events in the Southern Appalachian Highlands of North Carolina and Virginia: Relationships to Rainfall, Geological and Ecohydrological Controls, and Effects
Landsliding is a recurring process in the southern Appalachian Highlands (SAH) region of the Central Hardwood Region. Debris flows, dominant among landslide processes in the SAH, are triggered when
Utilizing crowdsourcing to enhance the mitigation and management of landslides
TLDR
A new landslide information system (LIS) comprising a smartphone app and an administrative interface and database and a comparison with similar systems, potential applications, and challenges of using smartphone technology for mitigating landslides are discussed.

An Improved Data-Driven Approach for the Prediction of Rainfall-Triggered Soil Slides Using Downscaled Remotely Sensed Soil Moisture
The infiltration of rainwater into soil slopes leads to an increase of porewater pressure and destruction of matric suction, which causes a reduction in soil shear strength and slope instability.
