NH41A:
Advances in Analysis and Prediction of Rock Falls, Rock Slides, and Rock Avalanches II Posters


Session ID#: 7959

Session Description:
Rock slope failures are among the most widespread and damaging rapid mass movements affecting mountainous areas, resulting in significant loss of life and property across the world each year. They also represent a potent erosional force capable of efficiently modifying landscapes. Modern hazard analyses demand deeper understanding of the triggering, failure mechanisms, and runout processes of rock slope failures. We invite novel contributions on rock falls, rock slides, and rock avalanches that either advance existing methods of analysis or present new understanding of phenomena. Topics may include theoretical and analytical developments, field and laboratory studies, monitoring strategies, geochronology, analytical and numerical modeling, or new methods in hazard assessment.
