Abstract

The purpose of this study is an evaluation of the various geologi cal, geomorphological and anthropogenic parameters that might have served as possible causes for the occurence of landslides. The evidence of neotectonism was provided by the various geomorphic criteria. 75 landslides were identified by remote-sensing. The triggering factors include rainfall and seismicity. The preventive measures to be adopted to stabilise the slopes have also been described
