The long-term evolution of rock slope failures involves different stages, from incipience of slope instability to catastrophic failure, through a more or less long-lasting slope deformation phase that also involves creeping or sliding. Topography, lithology, and structural inheritance are the main intrinsic factors that influence this evolution. Here, we investigate the role of these intrinsic fac ...

- ... For quantitative hazard assessment it is necessary to define the magnitude–frequency distribution and a temporal model of the landslide frequency. This is often complicated for large rock slope failures due to the lack of significant numbers of large rock slope failures in inventories of a given homogeneous region or sparse information about the timing. An inventory of 108 rock slope failure depos ...
