  • Sensitive clays: source, nature, development, characterization and extent

  • Slope development and processes

  • Triggering of landslides

  • Post-failure behaviour and landslide morphology

  • Modeling and slope stability assessment

  • Geotechnical and geophysical investigations

  • Susceptibility mapping

  • Hazard assessment, risk management, regulations and policies

  • Landslide precursors and early warning systems

  • Stabilizing methods in sensitive clays
