Integrated optimization of landslide alert systems

Integrated optimization of landslide alert systems

Objective

Worldwide landslides are one of the major types of natural hazards killing or injuring a large number of individuals and creating very high costs every year. Between 1990 and 1999, for example, in Italy at least 263 people were killed due to landslide events (Guzzetti 2000). The proponents of the project believe that for future work the multidisciplinary integration different methods have the greatest potential for substantial progress in natural hazards management. The aim of the suggested research project is to set up an integrated workflow for landslide hazard management. This system should lead the practitioner from the data acquisition all the way to suggestions of risk management measures.
