المستخلص: Landslides at large scales considered as high-risk natural disasters. In West Jordan, especially, the areas near the Dead Sea Transform Fault (DSTF) are mountainous terrains and the slopes of theses steep terrain being generally unstable due to the daily seismic activity generated by the DSTF. The case of Wadi Shueib structure is that it is a several tens of kilometers long of a recently reactivated structures. The reactivation of these structures is linked to the activity of the DSTF as stress inversion from compressive to transtension-transpression along old and new fault segments. In the study area, the NE-SW tensional faults are dominant and therefore, trigger mass-wasting at different scales and styles. The history of the landslides in Wadi Shueib is inherited in the hill-size slided strata along clear sliding surfaces. In the Wadi Shueib, there are at least four large landslides and none of them is provoked by human activities. Timing and mechanism of each one of these landslides is different. In this work, we put the light on these landslides as part of the preliminary data collected from the field.
