Proposition d'une méthode pour rendre compte des causes des glissements de terrain

Résumé

L'auteur présente une brève liste des causes des glissements de terrain et suggère un, système de référence destiné à rendre compte de ces causes. Cette liste et ce système constituent un complément utile au «Compte rendu sur un glissement de terrain» proposé par le Comité de Travail de l'UNESCO pour l'Inventaire mondial des glissements de terrain, établi par les Sociétés Internationales de Géotechnique.
