Special Issue Introduction

Landslides and mudslides result in catastrophic consequences, including loss of life, infrastructure destruction, and environmental degradation. The complex geological environment, characterized by steep slopes, weak rocks, and high rainfall, coupled with human activities such as deforestation, urbanization, and improper land use, significantly contribute to the susceptibility of areas to these hazards. Additionally, climate change-induced elements, including increased precipitation, extreme weather events, and thawing permafrost, further exacerbate the severity and frequency of landslides and mudslides. Gaining insights into the origins, effects, and efficient strategies to mitigate and recover from these occurrences is crucial for building resilient communities.

This Special Issue aims to shed light on the causes, impacts, and effective measures for mitigating and recovering from these catastrophic incidents. By bringing together interdisciplinary research and practical experiences, this publication provides a comprehensive understanding of landslides and mudslides and explores diverse means of diminishing their destructive outcomes. We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their work to this Special Issue, as we believe that their contributions will significantly advance our understanding and response to landslides and mudslides. Together, we can work towards building more resilient communities and reducing the impact of these natural disasters.

Areas covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
Landslide and mudslide formation: Geological, meteorological, and human factors contributing to landslides and mudslides;
Risk assessment and early warning systems: Development and implementation of effective risk assessment methods and early warning systems to minimize the impact of landslides and mudslides;
Engineering techniques for landslide mitigation: Innovative engineering practices, such as slope stabilization and reinforcement measures, to prevent and control landslides;
Environmental impacts and ecosystem recovery: Assessment of the environmental consequences of landslides and mudslides and strategies for ecosystem restoration;
● Community preparedness and resilience: Solutions for enhancing community preparedness and resilience in landslide and mudslide-prone areas.
