AbstractThe Working Classification nomenclature established by the Working Party for World Landslide Inventory during the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNRD) has become the basis for an emerging consensus on landslide classification. It lacks, hower, specific identifiers of permafrost that encompass all landslide types in both frozen and unfrozen terrain. We thus propose the addition of "frozen" to the descriptors of water content of materials.
