This handbook presents a framework for landslide risk management, describes
technical terms and methods of landslide risk analysis, and presents 8 case
studies prepared by experienced and knowledgeable terrain stability
It has been prepared for both terrain stability professionals and forest resource managers.
The objectives of the case studies are:
· to demonstrate approaches for the analysis of landslide risk in forest development, based on a common framework, terms and concepts;
· to illustrate different types of analyses for estimating landslide probability and consequence for cases with differing site conditions and elements at risk of loss or damage; and
· to highlight the application of current terrain stability research in professional practice in the BC Forest Sector.
