In the present paper, COSMO-SkyMed high-resolution data acquired on the southern Basilicata region (Italy) are used for flood hazard monitoring. We concentrate on the flood event of Nov. 2-4, 2010, for which multi-temporal SAR data were available over the Bradano River downstream area in the same acquisition geometry, which allows interferometric(More)
An analysis of global statistics shows a substantial increase in flood damage over the past few decades. Moreover, it is expected that flood risk will continue to rise due to the combined effect of increasing numbers of people and economic assets in risk-prone areas and the effects of climate change. In order to mitigate the impact of natural hazards on(More)
Remote sensing techniques have been widely used since the 1990s in landslide research, deploying for this purpose different spatial and spectral resolution imagery. This research includes photo-interpretation and inventory of large landslides, determinant factors analysis, stereo-plotting of movements, and automatic detection by textural analysis. The(More)
Landslides are significant natural hazards in many areas of the world. Mapping the areas that are susceptible to landslides is essential for a wise territorial approach and should become a standard tool to support land-use management. A landslide susceptibility map indicates landslide-prone areas by considering the predisposing factors of slope failures in(More)
The water-related disasters are considerably increasing worldwide in the last years. While certain trends are global (like climate change), some actions to contrast these problems have to be taken locally. In any case, the land characteristics should be known and analyzed in order to contrast the hazards and avoid their transformations into damages or(More)
– Landslides and debris flows can strongly interact with the river network and its mass transport processes, determining modifications of the river pattern with consequent effects on the hydrodynamic phenomena, alterations of the existing morphologies and possible interferences with anthropic works. Modifications of the cross section geometry and channel(More)
In times of increasing disaster losses, the reduction (or mitigation) of consequences of natural hazard needs to be effective and efficient. An in-depth understanding of the effects of disasters, is required in order to develop forms of sustainable risk management as well as risk mitigation and adaptation strategies (Directive 2007/60/CE; IPCC, 2012).
