A gallery of landslide images

Posted by Dave Petley

Summary: A new gallery of landslide images is online.  These are entries t0 the “Landslides of the World” photo contest at the second World Landslide Forum last week in Rome.

As part of the World Landslide Forum last week, the conference organisers arranged a photographic competition for landslide images.  Whilst I am now sure which picture won, these images are now online at the conference website.  There is in total 182 images online, and they represent a wonderful resource of images of landslide types and impacts.  This is just one example, taken by Lynn Highland of the USGS:

There are many other wonderful pictures on the site.
