The frequency of snowmelt‐induced soil slope instabilities is increasing in some seasonally cold regions because of climate change. Reliable hazard assessment and risk mitigation of snowmelt‐induced landslides require physically‐based prediction models. However, existing models either apply only at the slope scale or assume precipitation as the sole landslide trigger. In doing so, they neglect the complexity and coupled nature of the thermo‐hydro‐mechanical processes leading to slope… 
Surface temperature controls the pattern of post-earthquake landslide activity
The patterns and controls of the transient enhanced landsliding that follows strong earthquakes remain elusive. Geostatistical models can provide clues on the underlying processes by identifying
Detecting Chamoli landslide precursors in the southern Himalayas using remote sensing data
On 7 February 2021, a catastrophic flood destroyed two hydropower plants, killing at least 150 people in the Himalayan Uttarakhand state of India. This flood was reportedly initiated by a
Thermal Remote Sensing from UAVs: A Review on Methods in Coastal Cliffs Prone to Landslides
Using and capability of infrared thermography (IRT) were reviewed, highlighting its suitability in geological and landslides hazard applications, and a three-step methodological approach to produce IRTs was proposed.
Analysis of Factors Affecting the Rheological Properties of Muddy Flow and Their Measurement Method
Abnormal weather phenomena debris damage has recently been increasing worldwide. As primary rheological properties, the yield stress and plastic viscosity of muddy materials affect the flow distance
Snowmelt-triggered reactivation of a loess landslide in Yili, Xinjiang, China: mode and mechanism
As the global climate warms, the frequency of soil slope failures induced by snowmelt is gradually increasing, especially loess landslide disasters in seasonally frozen areas. Landslide disasters in


The cold regions hydrological model: a platform for basing process representation and model structure on physical evidence

A spatially distributed energy balance snowmelt model for application in mountain basins
Snowmelt is the principal source for soil moisture, ground-water re-charge, and stream-flow in mountainous regions of the western US, Canada, and other similar regions of the world. Information on
Scaling properties of rainfall induced landslides predicted by a physically based model
Testing a model for predicting the timing and location of shallow landslide initiation in soil‐mantled landscapes
The growing availability of digital topographic data and the increased reliability of precipitation forecasts invite modelling efforts to predict the timing and location of shallow landslides in
Assessment of shallow landsliding by using a physically based model of hillslope stability
A model for the simulation of shallow landsliding triggered by heavy rainstorms is analysed and discussed. The model is applied in two mountainous catchments in the Dolomites (Eastern Italian Alps):
Distributed modelling of shallow landslides triggered by intense rainfall
Abstract. Hazard assessment of shallow landslides represents an important aspect of land management in mountainous areas. Among all the methods proposed in the literature, physically based methods
