ROCKSLIDES AND AVALANCHES; VOLUME 2: ENGINEERING SITES

This book brings together the full scope of geological and geotechnical studies on the major rockslides and avalanches that have occurred in the Western Hemisphere, described in detail and interpreted by recognized authorities. Attention to detail characterizes the broad selection of articles relating mass movement events to reservoir, transportation, and open pit engineering projects, highlighted by a complete examination of the classic slide problems of the Gaillard Cut of the Panama Canal over the past 90 years.
