<p>The objective of this study is to develop a methodology for quantifying rainfall-induced landslide susceptibility in a regional scale. Based on the combination of mechanical stability analysis and artificial neural network (ANN) and of Geographic Information ...

<p>In the framework of landslide risk reduction, predicting the time of occurrence of a slope failure is a goal of major importance. The task is far from simple, since it is practically impossible to account for the large number of controlling variables and ...
