Abstract

The paper presents a new methodology for the deterministic assessment of landslide hazard at the regional scale in geologically complex chain areas. The methodology entails site specific geo-mechanical studies, as background of any hazard prediction application, and the creation of a Regional Landslide Manual portraying the geo-mechanical knowledge about the slope conditions across the region. The search in the regional manual of the landslide mechanisms which may correspond to the combination of landslide factors recorded at the local scale results in the hazard prediction. The testing of the methodology in the Daunia Apennines is discussed. © 2010 ASCE.
