Sea level rise (SLR) will cause shallow unconfined coastal aquifers to rise. Rising groundwater can emerge as surface flooding and impact buried infrastructure, soil beh

A shift from drought to extreme rainfall drives a stable landslide to catastrophic failure

Nature | February 7th, 2019

Summary

The addition of water on or below the earth’s surface generates changes in stress that can trigger both stable and unstable sliding of landslides and faults.
