Abstract/Summary

The BGS has a 175-year history of mapping and recording geology including unstable land. However, public awareness of such potential problems was not awakened until the Aberfan disaster, 44 years ago, when a school was buried by a landslide from a coal spoil tip killing 144 people, including 116 children. Since that event BGS research into landslides and unstable land has increased and new techniques have been developed to measure, monitor and model them.
