Special issue of LAND on ’’Analysis of Slope Stability in Relation to Climate Change and Multivariate Models for Landslide Activation’’ - scadenza invio contributi: 31/10/2022
Cari Soci AIGeo,
si segnala, su invito di Domenico Aringoli, Gilberto Pambianchi e Matteo Gentilucci, la special issue dal titolo "Analysis of Slope Stability in Relation to Climate Change and Multivariate Models for Landslide Activation".
I am writing to inform you that me and my colleagues will be managing a Special Issue of LAND entitled “Analysis of Slope Stability in Relation to Climate Change and Multivariate Models for Landslide Activation”.
This Special Issue has the ambitious objective of assessing the multiple variables that cause an increase in susceptibility to the phenomena in question, also in the light of climate change, creating multivariate models using GIS software that can outline the triggering conditions of landslide events. The triggering of landslide phenomena
often sees the focus of analysis on variation of the water content in the soil. This variation is due to different conditions, but overall to extreme rainfall, which undoubtedly has a priority role but requires well-defined threshold values in order to be considered a valid application tool. Although the issue of landslide-triggering conditions is a much-debated scientific problem, a systematic treatment by means of computer models could allow a better understanding of the subject, favoring a more conscious territorial planning or possible countermeasures in already urbanized areas.
