UC Berkley has a bunch of lectures online, including three geoengineering themed ones. It appears that they were all from lectures given as a part of the 27th Annual GeoEngineering Distinguished Lecture Series on May 8, 2009. So if you have an hour plus to kill per lecture (and I haven’t yet), you can check out one of the following.
The USGS has a documentary on landslide video on landslide danger in the San Francisco Bay area entitled “Riding the Storm”. I think the target audience is more general than geologist or engineer, but it is still interesting. The bullet points from the USGS site:
A catastrophic 1982 rainstorm triggered 18,000 landslides in the Bay Area, claiming 25 lives and causing $66 million in property damage
The combination of steep slopes, weak rocks, and intense winter storms make Bay Area uplands an ideal setting for landslides
Landslides include both swift, potentially deadly debris flows and slower, but destructive deepseated slides
Learn what USGS scientists have discovered about landslide dynamics and which slopes are most susceptible to sliding
Hear the devastating stories of Bay Area residents affected by landslides and learn to recognize the danger signs
