EurekAlert: Geological engineers create landslide atlas of Kerala, India

EurekAlert: Geological engineers create landslide atlas of Kerala, India. “Dedicated to the thousands of lives lost in landslides, the new atlas assesses landslide risk in 13 districts in the Indian state of Kerala. The Western Ghats trailing the western edge of India are a global hotspot for biodiversity. The southern reach of the range extends into Kerala, where the steep slopes, soft soils and heavy monsoon rains greatly increase the risk of landslides.”
