2011; Zhirkevich et al. 2011). 5 Effects of Bedrock Landslide Dams’ Morphology and Internal Structure on Their Hazard Assessment Geological conditions discussed above determine formation of large-scale bedrock landslides which is the main type of slope failures in mountainous regions of Central Asia responsible for river damming. However, as mentioned above, effects of valley inundation and of subsequent outburst floods are, in most cases, much more disastrous than direct effects of slope failure itself.

Landslide dams’ distribution in other parts of the Western Pamirs is more even, in general, while the plateau-like Eastern Pamirs almost lacks such features. Ambraseys and Bilham (2012) noted that almost all large-scale slope failures in the vicinity of the Usoi dam have occurred on south-facing slopes and linked this effect with stronger weathering depending on slope aspect. This assumption is opposed, however, by inverse orientation of slopes most affected by large rockslides in the upper part of the parallel Gunt River valley and its tributaries.

2006; Poschinger 2011; Dunning and Armitage 2011; Hewitt 2006, 2011; Abdrakhmatov and Strom 2006; Strom 1994, 2006, 2010b; Crosta et al. 2011; Davies and McSaveney 2011; Weidinger 2011). Such internal structure predetermines water filtration pattern and, in favorite cases, possibility of the dam to sustain the superficial and internal erosion. Coarse blocky carapace with large void space supports filtration, while intensively crushed and densely compacted angular fragments of the internal core could form almost impermeable body.
