Landslides and other slope movements pose a recurrent hazard to human life and livelihood in most parts of the world, especially in some regions that have experienced rapid population and economic growth.
Varieties of methods and techniques for terrain stability assessment and mitigation measures for mass movement prevention and control have been developed. However, many of these are limited to specific regional conditions. This session solicits contributions from researchers with experience of the latest techniques and methods of slope instability analysis and remedial measures, such as the use of remote sensing, computer programme modelling, and the application of chemical agents to reinforce slope materials etc. The main aim of the session is to exchange research results, novel designs and new ideas etc. through presentations and their discussion.
