(May 19, 2009) Another landslide that took place at the Three Gorges, China on May 18 prompted me to write this post and look closer at the causes of slope instability in that area.
Movement of the Shuping landslide in the first four years after the initial impoundment of the Three Gorges Dam Reservoir, China
(June 5, 2008) The Shuping landslide was reactivated by the initial impoundment of the Three Gorges Dam Reservoir, China in June 2003.
EDITORIAL: As Three Gorges ramps up, operating conflicts will intensify
(January 23, 2008) China’s Three Gorges dam operator plans to fill the Three Gorges reservoir to capacity this year despite the risk of more landslides and worsening environmental problems along the Yangtze, the country’s most important river.
Deformation monitoring and exploration on Shuping Landslide induced by ompoundment of the Three Gorges Reservoir, China
(2005) The Three Gorges Dam construction on the Yangtze River in China is the largest hydro-electric project in the world. After the first impoundment in June 2003, many landslides occurred or reactivated. Shuping landslide is one of the most active landslides among them. In this paper, the deformation of the Shuping landslide monitored by GPS, extensometers, and crack measurements are summarized.
