This publication contains the papers from a symposium on "Stability of Natural Slopes: Evaluation of Long Term Stability and Performance, and Seismic Analysis", which was held on October 23, 1995, at the ASCE National Convention in San Diego, California. The symposium was organized by the Committee on Engineering Geology and the Committee on Soil Properties of the Geotechnical Engineering Division of ASCE, with the support of the Association of Engineering Geologists. The papers discuss slope analysis, monitoring and mitigation. Case study landslides come from various locations including Maine, Kentucky, Southern California, and France. The papers are as follows: Landslides in Glaciomarine Clays of Coastal Maine, S.C. Devin and T.C. Sandford; Analysis of the Creeping Behavior of a Natural Slope in Kentucky, D.E. Stump, L.E. Vallejo, and N.C. Bazan-Arias; Assessing the Strength and Durability Properties of Shales, P.M. Santi; Slow Moving Debris Flow in the Isere Valley, France, C.L. Ho, J.L. Eymoz, and T.A. Hadj-Hamou; Seismic Performance of Hillside Fills, J.P. Stewart, J.D. Bray, D.J. McMahon, and A.L. Kropp; and Exploration and Remediation of U.S. Route 189 Hoover Landslides, T.S. Lee and L.W. Abramson. A Subject Index and an Author Index are provided.
