Landslide Dams

“Landslide dams” is a special issue representing the up-to-date research on geo-disasters associated with formation, evolution and breach of landslide dams. The major aims and scope of this special issue will be: Landslide dam- classification; geological and geomorphic conditions favorable for damming of rivers by landslides and for their preservation or failure; short and long term effects of landslide dams, including dam-break flood prediction and simulation, and river sediment flux changes as well as river morphological evolution of rivers; measures aimed to prevent or mitigate negative effects of the phenomena in question; case studies including geological, geophysical caracterisation of landslide dams and related features.
