Monteith F. 2020. SLIDE (Wellington): risk remediation approaches for anthropogenically modified slopes in the Wellington region. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. [209] p. (GNS Science report; 2019/51). doi:10.21420/07JP-Q216.

Abstract:
The goal of the Stability of Land In Dynamic Environments (SLIDE) research project is to improve the resilience of New Zealand's buildings and infrastructure through better knowledge of the behaviour of slopes in response to strong earthquake shaking and significant rain events and the development of strategies for more robust remediation approaches. The current focus of the SLIDE project is on Wellington, where the project is combining research funds from various sources to establish a larger and more coherent project investigating the effects or earthquakes and rain on slopes, and particularly on anthropogenically modified slopes ... Aurecon New Zealand Limited (Aurecon) has been engaged by GNS Science to assess current New Zealand and international design standards relevant to anthropogenic slopes and provide a succint literary review of current industry practice and provide recommendations for better design and management of these slopes.
