1. 5 various human activities that can directly or indirectly cause a landslide, how these
activities cause landslide
Construction works, An analysis of rock landslides that occurred during construction and
operation of hydraulic structure that enormous social and economic loss is associated with them
Legal or illegal mining The root cause of the problem is that this area has extensive small-scale
and unregulated gold mines. Whilst the rewards are potentially large, the risks associated
with mining gold in a deeply weathered landscape that is prone to both earthquakes and intense
rainfall are clear.
Over grazing, Overgrazing results in increased trampling of soil by livestock, which increases soil
compaction
Deforestation, This happens mainly because roots help fix trees in the ground and the sun-
blocking tree cover helps the soil to slowly dry out. As a result, deforestation will probably mean
the soil will become increasingly fragile, leaving the area more vulnerable to natural disasters
such as landslides and floods.
Road building, They are commonly a result of building roads and structures without adequate
grading of slopes, poorly planned alteration of drainage patterns, and disturbing old landslides.
2. 5 reasons why the coast is undergoing coastal erosion
Coastal erosion is a natural process which occurs whenever the transport of material away from
the shoreline is not balanced by new material being deposited onto the shoreline.
Many coastal landforms naturally undergo quasi-periodic cycles of erosion and accretion on time-scales
of days to years.
3. 5 ways to prevent the erosion of coastal waters to sea water.
*address erosion along sheltered coasts may be placed into broad categories
*Decisions on land use typically occur at the state and local levels. Land use measures have both spatial
and temporal components.
*Vegetation can be used to control shore erosion by planting appropriate grasses into the existing tidal
and supratidal substrate.
