This volume documents advances in our knowledge of catastrophic landslides, providing a worldwide survey of catastrophic landslide events. It draws on South America to illustrate dramatically the impact of these phenomena on human populations. The occurrence of catastrophic landslides, including site-specific insights, is shown through six events of the past 20 years. Several other chapters focus on the mechanisms involved with catastrophic landsides both in relation to geologic factors in a particular geographic area as well as to specific geologic processes.

Prepared by some of the world's leading experts in the field, this book is the first summarizing work on the origin, importance and exploitation of paleokarst. It offers an extensive regional survey, mainly concerning the Northern Hemisphere, as well as a thorough analysis of the problems of research into paleokarst phenomena, with particular emphasis on theoretical contributions and practical exploitation. By concentrating on phenomena which have appeared in the course of geological history, the book represents a substantial development in the general theory of paleokarst and demonstrates the advantages of a comprehensive approach to the problem. Considerable emphasis is put on the economic importance of paleokarst phenomena, from the point of view of exploiting significant deposits of mineral raw materials, as well as from a civil engineering and hydrological point of view. Since the publication deals with a boundary scientific discipline, it is intended for specialists from various branches of science: geologists, paleontologists, economic geologists, geographers, mining engineers and hydrogeologists.

Das Buch beschreibt und erklärt die Entstehung und Veränderung der Oberflächenformen der Erde in allen zeitlichen und räumlichen Größenordnungen, vom ephemeren, nur wenige Millimeter großen Einschlagskrater eines Regentropfens im Sandboden bis zum Milliarden Jahre alten Kontinentalschild als Resultate der Wirkung endogener und exogener Prozesse, die im geomorphodynamischen System in vielfältiger Weise miteinander verbunden und rückgekoppelt sind. Ergebnisse der empirischen Forschung im Gelände werden mit theoretischen Modellen der Formenentwicklung verknüpft. Die 5. Auflage wurde vollständig überarbeitet, erweitert und aktualisiert, Qualität und Umfang der Abbildungen wurden erhöht.
