Landslides happen when the soil gets too cloggy with the absorption of water. This happens mostly at the time of rainy season. The soil absorbs more moisture than it can retain and hence turns into a semi- liquid form (viscous). 1 Kings - The Lord said, Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord. Look, the Lord is ready to pass by. A very powerful wind went before the Lord, digging into the mountain and causing landslides, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the windstorm there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.

Print Book & E-Book. ISBNDifferently, in landslide classification, there are great difficulties because phenomena are not perfectly repeatable; usually being characterised by different causes, movements and morphology, and involving genetically different material. For this reason, landslide classifications are based on different discriminating factors, sometimes very.
