Mass Movement Study - Feasibility Study on Italian Landslide Risk Monitoring

A feasibility study on mass movement mapping and monitoring that includes an inventory and characterisation of landslide types, the identification of all factors conditioning or triggering mass movement, a survey of current monitoring techniques, a qualitative trade-off analysis of RS based technologies for landslide risk monitoring, the identification of best practices image processing methodologies, and the demonstration of the most suitable Remote Sensing techniques over three representative Service Cases in Italy.

The objectives of this feasibility study were the following:

  • Inventory and characterisation of Landslide types over the whole Italian territory and identification of all factors conditioning or triggering mass movement.
  • Survey and critical analysis (on both technical and financial aspects) of current monitoring techniques used by the Civil Protection Authorities or any delegated body to monitor Slope Instabilities.
  • Review (i.e. advantages and limitations) and qualitative trade-off analysis of RS based technologies for landslide risk monitoring, including the possibility to integrate RS data from several satellite sensors for a deeper analysis of Slope Instability and the possibility to integrate data acquired by ground instrumentation (e.g. ground surveys).
  • Identification and demonstration of different image processing methodologies to cope with different types of landslide, the differences being essentially represented by the dimension of the area of interest, the slope inclination, the type of landslide movement and the vegetation cover.
  • Utilisation of the most suitable Remote Sensing data processing algorithms over three Test Cases in Italy with landslide types representative of the Italian context (different lithology, different triggering factors, different dimension, etc.).
