Geology Licensure in California: Understanding Professional Geologist License Requirements

Identifying and Reducing Landslide Risk

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Background:
Landslides are a hazard that affects every U.S. state and territory, causing at least $1 billion in damage and 25–50 deaths annually in the United States. They include mudslides and debris flows, rockfalls, and slope failures, and occur due to both natural and human causes. The impacts of landslides can include damaged property, blocked or destroyed roads and other infrastructure, dammed streams and rivers (increasing flood risk), habitat loss, and loss of life. They can also occur in conjunction with other natural hazards such as floods, tsunami, earthquakes, and volcanic activity. Assessing and monitoring landslide risk helps to guide decisions that can reduce human and infrastructural vulnerability.

In this webinar, experts in landslide characterization, mapping, and risk reduction discuss landslide impacts in the United States; landslide research and mapping at the federal, state, and local levels; funding mechanisms for landslide mapping; and strategies for engaging communities in landslide risk reduction.
