This chapter presents a methodology of geohazard analyses caused by mining activities at coal mine "Suvodol" near the town Bitola in the Republic of Macedonia. The problems discussed here are connected with landslide with enormous dimensions. The process of sliding happened in several phases, with initial signs of sliding in 1993. The moment of global instability happened on October 27 ...India also accounted for maximum landslides triggered by mining, at 12%, followed by Indonesia (11.7%), and China (10%). Around 4 a.m. on April 17, 2012, water leakage from the head race tunnel of the Chamera III hydropower project in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh destabilised the slope.

Geohazard is a combination of two words, Geo meaning geological, and Hazard meaning the risk to environment, property, or life. It is basically the geological state of the environment that is at risk or may cause damage in near future.

Sonar systems are used for capturing the ocean floor. It can clearly show you the change in temperature in the sea.

His research interests lie in Geotechnical Engineering, focusing on the computation of underground rock mechanics design, which involves stress around openings, rib/snook design, and pillar design. Research: Computation of underground pillar failure mechanism and ground-support interaction.

This is because the existing mining centers in Malaysia is in a small scale compared to India and African countries that rely on this industry as the largest source of economic income. They make optimal use of mining workers necessary [5].
