Landslide hazards

Source(s):  ParsQuake: Earthquake Education in the Global Persian Community

In this lesson, students learn about earthquake-induced landslides and the associated hazards, and how and why landslides occur. In addition, students discuss steps they can take to reduce landslide hazards. This lesson begins with a tabletop exercise to simulate a complex situation with multiple possible responses before the students have obtained all of the knowledge of the lesson concepts. The exercise is based on the story of ten-year-old Tilly Smith, a British tourist in Thailand. She recognized the warning signs of an impending tsunami and subsequently alerted her parents, who then informed hotel staff. She is directly credited with saving hundreds of lives as a result of her timely and knowledgeable actions.
