  • 1. Mudflow Mitigation
    • By: Josh Cho, Charles Wang, and Dylan Lien
  • 2. Landslides and Mudflows
    • Landslide - The downwards sliding of a relatively dry mass of earth and rock.
    • Mudflow - A downhill movement of soft wet earth and debris, made fluid by rain of melted snow and often building up great speed.
    • Lahar - a volcanic landslide or mudflow.
    • Avalanche - a type of slide characterized by the chaotic movement of rocks, soil and debris mixed with water and/or ice.
  • 3. Introduction
    • Although landslides and mudflows don’t seem serious, it can be and is a serious problem in certain places.
    • Our goal is to raise awareness about this problem.
    • This is usually caused by heavy rain or snow melts- this results in huge boulders and chunks of dirt falling down a slope.
  • 4. Introduction (continued)
    • Mudflows are similar to landslides, just wetter.
    • travel up to 50 miles per hour.
    • These are very dangerous because they can crush trees, houses, and are even strong enough to kill innocent people.
  • 5. Our Specific Topic
    • prevention of mudflows and landslide
    • mitigation
    • to try and help our cause world-wide
  • 6. Our Purpose
    • helping to prevent and mitigate mudflows and landslides
    • they are often an overlooked natural disaster that causes major problems around the world
  • 7. The Message (make bullet)
    • People should be informed about the destruction of landslides and mudflows because not many people know about how landslides and mudflows happen and the damages they cause.
    • They can cause a numerous amount of deaths
    • We want to make people aware about the problem
  • 8. Information
    • A lot of landslides are related or caused by earthquakes.

    Short-Term Goal
  • 21. Long-Term Goal
    • 1. Continue to raise money for donation to organizations.
    • 2. Work with organizations that help with the prevention and mitigation of landslides and mudflows.
