Advanced methods in landslides research: modelling
|Convener: Giulio G.R. Iovine | Co-Convener: Denis Cohen|
Slope movements pose serious hazards yet are difficult to predict: several physical processes are coupled and operate on different time and spatial scales; materials are heterogeneous and their behaviors complex; the phenomena are transients; triggering is poorly understood. This session aims to bring together modellers of all aspects of landslide research. We seek contributions ranging from prediction of slope movement and failure to risk evaluation that make use of novel methods, concepts, and technologies. Of particular interests are theoretical, statistical, and numerical models, model calibration and validation, comparative studies of model performance, and sensitivity analyses.
A selection of studies presented at this session will be considered for publication in a special issue of a relevant international journal.
