Field Techniques for Landslide Assessment Course

The principal objective of this course is to teach students how to collect information and make observations in the field to support effective landslide risk assessments. The teaching method is based on guided field exercises, in which the students learn by carrying out realistic project related work in the field whilst being supervised by very experienced practitioners.
