In the current authors tried to have a transparent perception into the interworking of geotectonic, geomorphic, hydrologic and anthropogenic components resulting in landslide within the Shiv khola Watershed, the main worst affected zone of Darjiling Himalaya. This booklet contains the parameters answerable for landslide occasions in mountainous parts. It offers wisdom and realizing to the area people, planners, and coverage makers in regards to the reasons and outcomes of landslides in addition to offers an appropriate option to mitigate the landslips. The booklet bargains with the function of land, water and soil in landslide phenomena. those 3 attributes were defined when it comes to severe rainfall, severe slope, severe top and alterations and improvement of drainage community in landslides. Mitigations and site-specific administration suggestions are evaluated contemplating the jobs of neighborhood govt., neighborhood and different businesses in either pre-slide and post-slide sessions. a number of clinical tools were used to evaluate the landslides that would lead to large support to researchers within the box. particularly, Researchers in Mountain Geomorphology and Geological and Geographical Society gets large aid from a few issues comparable to 1-D slope balance version, SCS Curve quantity strategy, review of morphological parameters, program of RS & GIS, software of Analytical Hierarchy strategy. Semi-quantitative technique is for figuring out spatial distribution of harmony, friction attitude slope, lithology and lineaments, drainage, upslope contributing region, land use and land disguise kinds and so on. This ebook additionally finds a few ideas and versions for beginning slope instability.
