This paper presents the results of a research aimed at analysing the susceptibility to shallow landslides of a study area in the Calabria region (Southern Italy). These shallow landslides, which in some cases evolve as debris flows, periodically affect the study area, causing damage to structures and infrastructure. The involved soils come from the weathering of gneissic rocks and cover about 60% of the study area. To fulfil the goal of the research, the Transient Rainfall Infiltration and Grid-based Slope-Stability (TRIGRS) model was first used, assuming input data (including physical and mechanical parameters of soils) provided by the scientific literature. Then, the preliminary results obtained were used to properly locate in situ investigations that included sampling. Geotechnical laboratory tests allowed characterising the investigated soils, and related parameters were used as new input data of the TRIGRS model. The generated shallow landslide susceptibility scenario showed a good predictive capability based on the adoption of a cutoff-independent performance technique

Abstract

This paper presents the results of a research aimed at analysing the susceptibility to shallow landslides of a study area in the Calabria region (Southern Italy). These shallow landslides, which in some cases evolve as debris flows, periodically affect the study area, causing damage to structures and infrastructure. The involved soils come from the weathering of gneissic rocks and cover about 60% of the study area. To fulfil the goal of the research, the Transient Rainfall Infiltration and Grid-based Slope-Stability (TRIGRS) model was first used, assuming input data (including physical and mechanical parameters of soils) provided by the scientific literature. Then, the preliminary results obtained were used to properly locate in situ investigations that included sampling. Geotechnical laboratory tests allowed characterising the investigated soils, and related parameters were used as new input data of the TRIGRS model. The generated shallow landslide susceptibility scenario showed a good predictive capability based on the adoption of a cutoff-independent performance technique
