<p>Using a dataset of preexisting mapped landslides, we create two maps that provide a firstorder approximation of rockfall susceptibility for the state of New Mexico. In natural hazard assessments, the term 'susceptibility' is used to describe the natural ...

Rockyfor3D is a simulation model that calculates trajectories of single, individually falling rocks, in three dimensions (3D). The model combines physically-based, deterministic algorithms with stochastic approaches, which makes Rockyfor3D a so-called &lsquo;probabilistic ...

The paper deals with the assessment of the rockfall risk for a road stretch, in southern Italy, affected by high traffic intensity. Three qualitative rockfall risk rating systems (QRSs) which use an exponential scoring with a base of 3 were employed, and then ...

<p>The Teleferik area of Santorini Volcanic Complex, is characterized by rockfall risk due to existing morphological, geological, geotechnical and geodynamic conditions. It is therefore considered a high risk area because of the huge number, in annual base, ...

<p>At least 135 rock falls have occurred from Glacier Point in Yosemite Valley since 1870. Rock falls in 1996 and 1998&ndash;1999 led to hypotheses that these events were triggered by water system discharges from visitor facilities (leachfield and storage ...
