AGU Day 4: landslide sessions

There were two landslide sessions at AGU today, both in the afternoon. This was the part of the meeting about which I was most excited, but sadly to be honest the reality did not meet my expectations. I won’t write about all of the talks here, just a selected few. First up was Bruce Malamud, who talked about the statistics of landslide clusters. This is great work, showing the remarkable …
