Abstract

This application allows users to search for - naturally-occurring landslides - landslides with a significant human contribution or directly triggered by humans,- flood events causing significant erosion, and - flash flood events involving mud or debris - which have been recorded by Geoscience Australia and contributing scientific organisations and returns these landslide and flood events along with their associated data. - Human-triggered landslides include events such as sand collapses caused by children digging holes or tunnels, boulders displaced by climbers, rock ledges breaking off when a person stands or sits on them, and collapses caused by excavation. Landslides are often called landslips and the terms are interchangeable.
