Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb.18
By Ilhama Isabalayeva -Trend:
The monitoring of landslide zones will start in Azerbaijan next week, an official of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources Sadig Amiraslanov told Trend on Feb.18.
Landslide activity is observed with transition to the spring season. Amiraslanov noted that more than half of the landslide activity is associated with technological and human factors.
"Most of the landslides occur on the roads (Agsu passage, Muganli-Ismayillli, Guba-Khinalig). These processes are related to human activities, and technological factors. Therefore, while laying roads the stability of the slope and the tendency to landslide processes should be considered," Amiraslanov said.
