A collection of geologic hazard photos from the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC). Many of these photos were originally 35mm slide sets made available to educators and others. Now you can download them. Only problem is they are in TIF format, so you might want to convert them to JPG.

A series of landslide events in Malaysia has forced the government to consider landslide seriously. The landslide at Bukit Lanjan on November 26, 2003 resulted in the closing of the NKVE toll expressway for 6 months. A substantial amount of money has to be spent on the repair of the slope and not to mention the revenue loss incurred by the expressway concessionaire and the difficulty faced by the road users. As a result of this event, the Government decided that a body must be established to oversee the management of slopes for the whole country. Slope Engineering Branch was instituted on February 2, 2004 after getting the consent from the Cabinet.
