USGS Landslide Hazards Program

This site is the homepage of the United States Geological Survey's (USGS) Landslide Hazards Program (LHP). Materials available include an overview of the geologic hazard presented by landslides, a discussion of the objectives and operations of LHP, and links to program staff. The site also provides a link to the National Landslide Information Center (NLIC), which is responsible for distributing information about landslides to the public, researchers, planners, and local, state, and federal agencies. There are additional links to news articles and publications, reports on specific hazards encountered in Seattle, Washington, and a link to the LHP's five-year plan, which presents the agency's long-term goals in assessing, monitoring, and mitigating landslide hazards.
