koshi KDKH Landslide/Sedimentation earthquake
SEM-based seismic slope stability and mitigation model for the jure landslide after the 7.8Mw 2015 Barpak-Gorkha, Nepal, earthquake

A massive landslide in the Jure village of Sindhupalchowk District, Nepal, occurred on August 2, wiping out dozens of houses and blocking the Sunkoshi River. The spectral element method (SEM) is employed here to study the stability of the slope where the landslide occurred, considering dry and wet slope conditions and pseudo-static seismic loading (with refer to 7.8Mw 2015 Barpak-Gorkha, Nepal earthquake).

koshi KDKH Landslide/Sedimentation GIS remote sensing
Analysis of jure landslide dam, Sindhupalchowk using GIS and remote sensing

On 2nd August a rainfall-induced massive landslide hit Jure village, Sindhupalchowk killing 156 people at a distance of 70 km North-East of Kathmandu, Nepal. The landslide was a typical slope failure with massive rock fragments, sand and soil. A total of estimated 6 million cubic meters debris raised more than 100 m from the water level and affected opposite side of the bank.
