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 Veneto

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 hazards

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.

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 for

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,

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 the

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. It

Landslide inventory and susceptibility and hazard zoning

Landslides are considered as a geological disaster that has an unfavourable effect on lives and properties, generating both direct and indirect economic and human losses every year. Compared to other



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 for

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, hence

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. An

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, and

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,

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 risk

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 in

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.

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 hazard

GIS-Based Probabilistic Mapping of Landslide Hazard Using a Three-Dimensional Deterministic Model

Based on a new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) grid-basedthree-dimensional (3-D) deterministic model and taking the slopeunit as the mapping unit, this study maps landslide hazard usingthe 3-D
