Definition: Many types of landslide are repeated in the same location. This is applicable to both the almost annual landslides, which are a known problem in many parts of the country, and to the far rarer landslides. Knowledge of landslides that have taken place over the years helps us to understand the risk of landslides in an area. Information on previous landslides is therefore important when mapping areas susceptible to landslides. Landslide events are: Landslide events - killed, Landslide events - landslide type, Landslide events - consequence and Landslide events - snow avalanche.
