Landslide susceptibility and hazard mapping in Australia for land-use planning — with reference to challenges in metropolitan suburbia
Abstract This paper provides an overview of the history and current status of landslide susceptibility and hazard mapping for land-use zoning in Australia. It also describes a case study of landslideExpand
Minimal Standards for Susceptibility and Hazard Maps of Landslides and Rock Falls
Within the scope of the EU program INTERREG IV A (Italy/Austria), the project MassMove – with partners from the regional governments of Carinthia (Austria), and of Friuli Venezia Giulia and VenetoExpand
Rockfall Hazard Zoning for Land Use Planning
Although rock instabilities constitute a threat to human lives and settlements all over the world, methodologies for assessing and zoning rockfall hazards for urban development planning are far fromExpand
Analysis of Slope Sensitivity to Landslides by a Transdisciplinary Approach in the Framework of Future Development: The Case of La Trinité in Martinique (French West Indies)
Landslide hazard and risk assessment (LHA & LRA) in the French West Indies is a big challenge, particularly in Martinique, where several factors contribute to high slope sensitivity to landslides.Expand
Chapter 4 Landslide and slope stability hazard in the UK
Abstract With its rich lithological variation, upland, lowland and coastal settings, and past climatic changes, the UK presents a wide variety of landslide features that can pose significant hazardsExpand
GIS-based hazard and risk maps of the Douro river basin (north-eastern Portugal)
The Douro river basin, in north-eastern Portugal, is a very complex region in terms of its geomorphological structure and morphodynamics. More specifically, the region – the Port Wine-growing region,Expand
Integration of Geohazards in Urban Planning and Management
Geological conditions capable of causing damage, or loss of property and life, are called geological hazards and commonly referred to as "geohazards". Geohazards are recognised as a major threat forExpand
Assessing residential building values in Spain for risk analyses – application to the landslide hazard in the Autonomous Community of Valencia
Abstract. This paper proposes a method of valuing the stock of residential buildings in Spain as the first step in assessing possible damage caused to them by natural hazards. For the purposes of theExpand
Landslide Susceptibility Mapping, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment for Development of Early Warning Systems in India
Landslide or the landmass movement is a geomorphic hill slope physical process of mass-wasting resulting in downslope rolling of large mass of debris, regolith and soil under influence of gravity. ItExpand


Multivariate models for landslide hazard evaluation
As part of a long-term project aimed at a better understanding of the geological and geomorphological factors that control slope instability phenomena in Southern Italy, multivariate models forExpand
Landslide hazard zonation: A review of principles and practice
Of all natural hazards, slope failures are the most amenable to measures directed towards avoidance, prevention or correction. The causes inherent in the terrain are relatively well understood, henceExpand
An approach towards deterministic landslide hazard analysis in GIS. A case study from Manizales (Colombia)
A one-dimensional deterministic slope stability model (infinite slope model) was used to calculate average safety factors and failure probabilities for the city of Manizales, in central Colombia. AnExpand
Prediction and mapping of landslide hazard
The paper describes a mechanics-based methodology for prediction of landslide hazard on hillside slopes. The principal components are estimation of infiltration and groundwater response, andExpand
Verification of landslide susceptibility mapping: a case study
A methodology is proposed for mapping susceptibility to landsliding and validating the results. Heavy rains in late 1996 and early 1997 led to a large number of landslids in the Rute sector (Cordoba,Expand
Preparing a Detailed Landslide-Inventory Map for Hazard Evaluation and Reduction
A method of preparing a detailed landslide-inventory map has been developed which provides the engineering geologist with the basic information for evaluating and reducing landslide hazards or riskExpand
Landslide hazard evaluation: a review of current techniques and their application in a multi-scale study, Central Italy
In recent years, growing population and expansion of settlements and life-lines over hazardous areas have largely increased the impact of natural disasters both in industrialized and developingExpand
Landslide hazard and risk zonation—why is it still so difficult?
The quantification of risk has gained importance in many disciplines, including landslide studies. The literature on landslide risk assessment illustrates the developments which have taken place inExpand
Assessment of rockfall risk along roads
Abstract. This paper contains a method for the analysis of rockfall risk along roads and motorways. The method is derived from the Rockfall Hazard Rating System (RHRS) developed by Pierson et al.Expand
Integrated Landslide Susceptibility Analysis and Hazard Assessment in the Principality of Andorra
In the paper we present the procedure for hazard assessment that has been used to prepare the landslide hazard map of the Principality of Andorra at 1:5,000 scale. The main phases of the hazardExpand
