520    "Landslides have geological causes but can be triggered by
       natural processes (rainfall, snowmelt, erosion and 
       earthquakes) or by human actions such as agriculture and 
       construction. Research aimed at better understanding slope
       stability and failure has accelerated in recent years, 
       accompanied by basic field research and numerical modeling
       of slope failure processes, mechanisms of debris movement,
       and landslide causes and triggers. Written by 75 world-
       leading researchers and practitioners, this book provides 
       a state-of-the-art summary of landslide science. It 
       features both field geology and engineering approaches, as
       well as modeling of slope failure and run-out using a 
       variety of numerical codes. It is illustrated with 
       international case studies integrating geological, 
       geotechnical and remote sensing studies and includes 
       recent slope investigations in North America, Europe and 
       Asia. This is an essential reference for researchers and 
       graduate students in geomorphology, engineering geology, 
       geotechnical engineering and geophysics, as well as 
       professionals in natural hazard analysis"--|cProvided by
