Seeking stable slopes in a time of rapid change: This symposium will present case studies and field-based research of landslide processes and landslide hazard evaluation, management, mitigation and risk reduction in the frameworks of historical and contemporary societal needs. Topics include field studies of landslide aConveners: Kevin McCoy and Casey Dowlingctivity, morphology, and geometry; comparative evaluation of historical and contemporary mining-related geohazards from a technical and social standpoint, and impacts of climate change on landslide processes.
