The goal of this contribution is to develop a set of methods and techniques for modelling landslide hazard, in order to obtain better predictions and, therefore, to reduce the risk associated to this type of process. The research has been carried out in North-Western Guipuzcoa (Spain), an area intensely affected by shallow landslides. Hazard predictions must be based on several assumptions, termed scenarios. To propose more realistic hazard scenarios, two different approaches have been applied: ...

This paper presents a method for studying recent landscape evolution due to mass movements. The method presented employs digital photogrammetric techniques, combined with global positioning system (GPS) measurements, to analyse landslide features depicted in aerial images taken by ad hoc and historical flights. The method was applied and validated in a 7 -km2 area, located on a south-facing slope of a tributary of the Pas River (Cantabrian Range, Spain). In this area many landslide deposits and ...

An overview of the main geomorphic hazards in Spain is presented. For each one of the processes analysed (floods, landslides, sinkholes, and coastal hazards), a brief description of their distribution, socioeconomic effects, and main causes is given. The main lines of research undertaken in recent times on these hazards, including development of new tools or techniques, are discussed. Finally, legislation and land-use planning measures for mitigation of risks due to such processes are described.
