The Prediction and Prevention of Landslides

  • Luigi Coppola


The prediction and prevention of landslides starts from the assumption: the need for monitoring the soil Why? The answer to this question requires the introduction of a postulate able to provide Geological and Environmental Scientists with an objective basis for the evaluation of the developing physical processes.
