daveslandslideblog is two years old today!

Very kindly AGU decided to hold a birthday lunch to celebrate the second anniversary of daveslandslideblog (actually the geobloggers lunch, but who’s counting?). I started the blog two years ago as a bit of an experiment to see what would happen, and have really enjoyed putting it together (and I have learnt a huge amount too). During this time I have made 437 posts. I put a web counter on …

However, there are some excellent ongoing posts on this slide on the Sliding Though blog, which the is the Washington State landslide blogsite.

Landslides from Cyclone Alia in Darjeeling

One of the most admirable landslide websites that I know is the Save the Hills blog, which is the mouthpiece of a community level group trying to raise awareness of the problems of landslides in Darjeeling in NE India. I have featured this site several times before. As Cyclone Alia has closed in on the area over the last few days See below) they have been warning of the danger …

Some interesting landslide sites

I thought that it was high time to post a summary of some interesting landslide sites: Aowanda landslideThere is an interesting youtube video of a smallish progressive rockslide occurring at Aowanda in Taiwan here. It should also be visible below: Not quite as dramatic as some others, but useful nonetheless. Five disastrous landslides that changed the Canadian LandscapeThere is quite a nice non-scientific piece here that describes in non-technical language …

Malaysia landslide – residents action group blog

I have only briefly touched upon the 6th December 2008 landslide at Bukit Antarabangsa in Kuala Lumpur, which has been a very high profile event in Malaysia. I don’t intend to comment on any aspect of the landslide – GiB has covered it in his own style in the oddly-named Landslide under Microscope blog – see here, here and here. Interestingly though a new Blog has appeared called Save Bukit …

Dave’s landslide blog – one year on

Yesterday we threw a small party to celebrate the first birthday of this Blog, which is today. As you can imagine, it was well-attended by A-list celebrities, some of whom have a surprising interest in landslides. Did you know for example that Britney Spears has a deep fascination with flow dynamics (although rumours that the lyrics of her song were originally “my debris flow is killing me” may well be …

Another landslide blog

Interestingly, I today came across another landslide blog, also housed on blogger: Landslides under the microscope The Blog appears to have been active since September this year, although it is not clear who is maintaining it. Nonetheless, someone is putting a great deal of time into it and there is some good stuff on the site. It has quite a strong Asian focus – especially Japan – so I guess …
