AbstractOn 13 July 2003, a landslide with a volume of approximately 20 × 106 m3 occurred on the left bank of the Qinggan River, Zigui County, Hubei Province, China. As a result, 14 people died and 10 people are missing. A landslide dam was formed, blocking the Qinggan River. A channelized diversion was constructed for prevention of upstream flooding and damage downstream caused by dam breaching. The landslide was a typical translational rockslide in weathered shale and sandstone, a block of which slipped down along the bedding plane. It is estimated that the landslide was caused by the combined effect of the following factors: (i) a bedding plane between incompetent weathered shale and competent sandstone that daylights at or is shallowly buried at the bottom of the Qinggan River; (ii) a thin layer of clayey soil acting as the slip plane that is likely a preexisting shear surface; (iii) excavation of the shale as raw material for brick fabricating on the slope; and (iv) a combination of prolonged rainfall and reservoir impounding. © 2004 NRC.
