With weather switch and deforestation, particles flows and particles avalanches became the main major landslide dangers in lots of international locations. lately there were a variety of particles circulation avalanches in Southern Europe, South the USA and the Indian Subcontinent, leading to significant catastrophes and big death. this can be accordingly an important high-profile challenge for the world's governments and for the engineers and scientists involved. Matthias Jakob and Oldrich Hungr are very best to edit this publication. Matthias Jakob has labored on particles circulate for over a decade and has had a variety of papers released at the subject, in addition to operating as a expert on particles move for municipal and provincial governments. Oldrich Hungr has labored on web site investigations on particles circulate, avalanches and rockfall, with emphasis on slope balance research and overview of dangers to roads in built-up components. He has additionally built mathematical types for landslide dynamic research. they've got invited world-renowned specialists to joint them during this ebook.

Their high ¯ow velocity, impact forces, and long runout, combined with poor temporal predictability, cause debris ¯ows and debris avalanches to be one of the most hazardous landslide types. 1 and Chapters 20 and 21). A signi®cant portion of the death toll during regional disasters, caused by major storms and earthquakes, is due to debris ¯ows and debris avalanches on steep terrain.
