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, ...

Given that clay-rich landslides may become mobilized, leading to rapid mass movements (earthflows and debris flows), they pose critical problems in risk management worldwide. The most widely proposed mechanism leading to such flow-like movements is the increase ...

The purpose of this pilot study was to develop a methodology to assess risk to life from cliff collapse. The report considers cliff collapse triggered by earthquakes and other causes, and expresses risk as annual individual fatality risk. The risk to life, ...

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 ...

Debris flows are fast mass movements formed by a mix of water and solid materials, which occur in steep torrents, and are a source of high risks for human settlements. Geophones are widely used to detect the ground vibration induced by passing debris flows. ...

This report presents an emergency assessment of potential debris-flow hazards from basins burned by the 2011 Motor fire in the Sierra and Stanislaus National Forests,Calif. Statistical-empirical models are used to estimate the probability and volume of debrisflowsthat ...

Water-related disasters most perceived by the public are those caused by large-scale riverine floods. There is evidence, however, that the most deadly events, which are driven by extreme precipitation, are those that are difficult to predict, such as debris ...

In June 2011, the Track Fire burned 113 square kilometers (km2) in Colfax County, northeastern New Mexico, and Las Animas County, southeasternColorado, including the upper watersheds of Chicorica and Raton Creeks. The burned landscape is now at risk of damage ...

The papers that are here presented and sum-marised represent the recent scientific contributions of someauthors coming from different countries and working in the fields of monitoring, modelling, mapping and design of mitigation measures against mass movements. ...

The objective of this study is to propose new approaches that can improve hazard zone delineationaccuracy and simulate hazard zones in response to different rainfall intensity. In this study, a two-dimensionalcommercial model FLO-2D, physically based and taking ...
