  18. 18. This is an essential part of any landslide zoning. It Landslide Inventory (I): involves the location, classification, volume, travel distance, state of activity and date of occurrence of landsliding in an area. Landslide Susceptibility (S): Areas prone to slope failure or that where a landslide may travel onto or retrogress into it. Landslide Hazard (H): The probability of occurrence within a specified period of time and within a given area of a potentially damaging phenomenon. Elements at Risk (Er): Means the population, properties, economic and social activity, etc., at risk in a given area. Vulnerability (V): Means the degree of loss of a given element or set of elements at risk of a given magnitude. It is expressed on a scale from 0 (no damage) to 1 (total loss). Specific Risk (Rs): Means the expected degree of loss due to a particular natural phenomenon. It may be expressed by the product of Hazard times Vulnerability Total Risk (R): Means the expected number of lives lost, person I S H R injured, damage to property, or destruction of economy activity due to a particular natural phenomenon, and is therefore the product of specific risk and element at risk

  42. 42. I S H TYPE OF LANDSLIDE Frequency Triggering Intensity Propagation 3 different approaches for landslides Intensity assessment 1) HISTORICAL INFO, GEOLOGY AND TOPOGRAPHY Assess the relative intensity from the estimated Landslide volume and the expected landslide BASIC LEVEL velocity (qualitative) 2) SIMPLE MODELS INTERMEDIATE LEVEL Estimate expected or observing landslide velocity 3) NUMERICAL MODELS Calculate the kinetic energy (velocity) by means of ADVANCED LEVEL numerical models
  43. 43. I S H TYPE OF LANDSLIDE Frequency Triggering Intensity Propagation 1) HISTORICAL INFO, GEOLOGY AND TOPOGRAPHY Assess the relative intensity from the estimated Landslide volume and the expected landslide velocity (qualitative) BASIC LEVEL
  44. 44. I S H TYPE OF LANDSLIDE Frequency Triggering Intensity Propagation •  requency of landslide can be determined from: F BASIC LEVEL: •  HISTORICAL DATA INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: •  RELATIONS WITH TRIGGERING EVENT FREQUENCY (I.E. RAINFALL, EARTHQUAKE) ADVANCED LEVEL: •  RELATING THE INDICATORS OR REVEALING FACTORS OF SLOPE STABILITY CONDITION (I.E. WATER CONTENT, GROUNDWATER LEVEL, PORE-WATER PRESSURE) TO TRIGGERING FACTORS (RAINFALL)
  45. 45. I S H TYPE OF LANDSLIDE Frequency Triggering Intensity Propagation AN EXAMPLE OF APPROACH AT REGIONAL SCALE Definition of an INDEX OF SLIDE PRONE AREA IN Given by the ratio between the number of towns affected by landslides during an event NI and the total number of threatened towns in the study area NT IN = NI / NT Relative to a given return Time T [year] in order to define an annual frequency f [year -1]
  46. 46. I S H TYPE OF LANDSLIDE Frequency Triggering Intensity Propagation For example by the definition of Rainfall Intensity-Duration Thresholds, considering the rainfall that caused landslides in the past and – eventually – the cumulative antecedent rainfall that predisposed to failure condition
  47. 47. I S H Type of Landslide FREQUENCY Triggering Intensity Propagation & (BASIC LEVEL) (INTERMEDIATE LEVEL) Care should be taken in the evaluation of landslide frequencies -  ECAUSE THE HISTORICAL DATA COULD BE AFFECTED BY ERRORS B -  ECAUSE THE CONDITIONS RESPONSIBLE FOR A GIVEN LANDSLIDE B FREQUENCY IN THE PAST MAY NO LONGER EXIST

  50. 50. I S H Type of Landslide FREQUENCY Triggering Intensity Propagation You can assess these relations considering: - different wet initial conditions (on the base of cumulative rainfall dropped before of the event) - the seasonal mean humidity conditions ADVENCED LEVEL

  55. 55. THE TYPE AND LEVEL OF DETAIL OF THE ZONING AND THE SCALE OF THE MAPS DEPENDS ON THE PURPOSE TO WHICH THE LANDSLIDE ZONING IS TO BE APPLIED AND A NUMBER OF OTHER FACTORS: 1) The stage of development of the land use zoning plan or engineering project 2) The classification, activity, volume or intensity of landsliding. Risk zoning is more likely to be required where the landslides are likely to travel rapidly and or have a high intensity. For these situations life loss is more likely 3) The founding available 4) The amount and quality of available information. Quantitative (Advanced) hazard and risk zoning cannot be performed where data are not available Key words:

  57. 57. BUT YOU MUST ALSO THINK THAT SOMETIMES ADVANCED METHOD COULD NOT BE BETTER THAN SIMPLIFIED METHOD WHEN A BIG NUMBER OF INFORMATION ARE AVAILABLE, BECAUSE OF: 1) The big variability of the soil, bedrock and so on (heterogeneity) 2) Uncertainties in the processes understanding 3) Uncertainties in the measurements 4) Representativity of site-measurements and laboratory tests at the investigated area (Hydraulic Retention function, Hydraulic Conductivity function, thickness of the cover, bedrock permeability, etc) 5) DEM resolution 6) The dominant role of some factors respect to the others ANYWAY, ALSO THE OPPOSITE COULD BE TRUE……..
  58. 58. AN EXAMPLE: THE SIMPLE SHALSTAB MODEL (MONTGOMERY AND DIETRICH, 1994) •  Shallow landslide can occurr only for saturation from below. •  Does not account for unsaturated flow dynamics and for the suction contribute on the shear-strength resistance •  Considers only the steady-state condition for the subsurface water flow •  Overland flow is neglected, but It should modify the boundary conditions, (e.g. the water level in a channel located at the toe of the hillslope) •  Does not account the effects due to boundary conditions.
