Up to now there are very few examples in India of landslide hazard maps (Sarkar and Kanungo, ; Bhandari, ; Sharda, ), although a substantial part of the country's most landslide.

Landslides in India are considered a major hazard in Landslide hazard management and control in India book hilly and mountains regions as well as in steep river banks and coastlines. The causes of landslides in India are not much different from the world, but there are some peculiarities.

Landslide Hazard level: High. In the area you have selected landslide susceptibility is classified as high according to the information that is currently available. This means that this area has rainfall patterns, terrain slope, geology, soil, land cover and (potentially) earthquakes that make localized landslides a frequent hazard phenomenon.

The book contains a wealth of the latest information on all aspects of theory, practices and modelling tools and techniques involved in prediction, prevention, monitoring, mitigation and risk analysis of landslide hazards.

This book will bring the reader up to date on the latest trends in landslide studies and will help planners, engineers. These guidelines by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) on management of landslides and snow avalanches aim to reduce the enormous destructive potential of landslides and minimize the consequential losses by institutionalizing the landslide hazard mitigation efforts.

Abstract. Coseismic landslides are important effects of strong earthquakes and one of the most poorly understood. Such landslides are driven by inertial forces acting on slopes and can vary in size from individual rock blocks of a few m 3 in volume to catastrophic rock avalanches of many Mm 3, which can claim many thousands of capability of an earthquake to trigger a landslide.
