is a common phenomanon in northren Pakistan due to active seismcity, rough topography, monsoon rains, deforestation and infrastructure development on unstable slopes.
is a geomorphic slope failure process triggered by natural as well as anthropogenic factors and is controlled by unfavorable terrain conditions that act as causal factors.
The region is highly susceptible to landsliding
(Zaruba and Mencl, 1982; Rybar and Stemberk, 2000).
"Role of cohesive strength in the mechanics of overthrust faulting and landsliding
Rather than a simple yes or no answer, a probabilistic slope stability calculation will yield results such as a probability of landsliding
or a reliability index.
