The development of susceptibility maps for debris flows is of primary importance due to population pressure in hazardous zones. However, hazard assessment by processbased modelling at a regional scale is difficult due to the complex nature of the phenomenon, ...

Debris flows and related landslide processes occur in many regions all over Norway and pose a significant hazard to inhabited areas. Within the framework of the development of a national debris flows susceptibility map, we are working on a modeling approach ...

Unlike fragmental rockfall runout assessments, there are only few robust methods to quantify rock-massfailure susceptibilities at regional scale. A detailed slope angle analysis of recent Digital Elevation Models (DEM) canbe used to detect potential rockfall ...

Debris flow susceptibility mapping at a regional scale has been the subject of various studies. The complexity of the phenomenon and the variability of local controlling factors limit the use of process-based models for a first assessment. GIS-based approaches ...
