An important new paper by Royan et al (2015) has used terrestrial LiDAR to examine progressive failure of a rockslope in Spain.
A new video has appeared that shows a large progressive rockslide in action. It was taken at the town of Riddes in Switzerland in Friday
ETH in Zurich is organising a very exciting symposium on Progressive Rock Failure in June 2017 in Monte Verità, Switzerland
A video on Youtube shows a road collapse event that destroyed a truck at Paglajhora in Darjeeling. The landslide was a part of a much larger and very active slope failure that seems to have been initiated and exacerbated by poor slope management practices
Last month the official Expert Panel released its report on the Feijao tailings dam disaster at Brumadinho in Brazil, which killed over 300 people.
NPA Satellite Mapping have completed a pre-failure analysis of the Fagraskogarfjall landslide in Iceland using InSAR data. Up to 2 metres of movement occurred in the year before the main collapse.
On Friday a significant tailings dam failure occurred at the Cadia gold mine in Australia, causing production to be stopped. Fortunately, to date no release of tailings beyond the boundaries of the mine has occurred.
The Nuugaatsiaq landslide in Greenland: understanding failure processes from the precursory seismic signals (review of a paper)
In Jalan Kenanga in Malaysia in 2009, a large retaining wall collapsed at a construction site. A video captured the failure as it developed.
