Methods of recognition of potential earth movements through remote sensing approaches and field reconnaissance are described to aid in defining the extent of the problem. The identification of the type of movement is essential to proper solution of the problem. Techniques for installing instruments and analyzing data are covered, as are methods of evaluating the strength potential of the rock and soil. Methods of determining stability requirements in order to obtain the most efficient design are described in detail. Design and construction techniques are described that will facilitate the handling of the movement problem and to avoid contributing to future movement. Rock-slope engineering is given special attention, particularly in a section on warning devices.
