The goal of this article is to revise several aspects of the well-known classification of landslides, developed by Varnes (1978). The primary recommendation is to modify the definition of landslide-forming materials, to provide compatibility with accepted geotechnical and geological terminology of rocks and soils. Other, less important modifications of the classification system are suggested, resulting from recent developments of the landslide science. The modified Varnes classification of… 
Landslide definition and classification
  • Geology
  • 2019
The proposed classification follows Cruden and Varnes’s (1996) revised version of the widely used Varnes classification system (Varnes, 1978). More recently, Hungr et al. (2014) proposed further
Physics and Modeling of Various Hazardous Landslides
In 2014, the Varnes classification system for landslides was updated. Complex landslides can still be a problem to classify as the classification does not include the flow type in the hydrodynamical
Analysis of the Maierato landslide (Calabria, Southern Italy)
On 15 February 2010, a landslide of great dimensions occurred at Maierato (Calabria, Southern Italy) after a long rainy period. Although the zone was continuously affected by ground movements
Description of soils based on geomechanical criteria for improved landslide classification
This paper presents a proposal, developed as part of the EC-sponsored SafeLand project, to supplement existing landslide classifications with a more detailed description of the geomechanical
The development of unconsolidated sedimentary coastal cliffs (Pobrzeże Kaszubskie, Northern Poland)
In the course of fieldwork based on geological and landslide mapping and spatial analyses of map information at least 2 types of landslides were identified. Type I: simple landslides developed in
Landslide types in the Slani Potok gully, Croatia
The Slani Potok gully (0.48 km2) is situated in the central part of the Vinodol Valley (64.57 km2) in Croatia, and it was formed in the Eocene flysch deposits. So far, the area of Slani Potok has
