SAFELAND – Living with landslide risk in Europe: Assessment, effects of global change, and risk management strategies.

The project will develop instruments for the evaluation and management of the risks caused by local, regional and European landslides in order to mitigate the damages and evaluate the areas with more risk by considering the ongoing climate change.

Duration
36 months from 01/05/2009 to 01/04/2012
Funded by
  • European Commission

General aims

The SAFELAND project, coordinated by NGI (Norvegian Geotechnical Institute) will develop instruments for the evaluation and management of the risks caused by local, regional and European landslides in order to mitigate the damages and evaluate the areas with more risk by considering the ongoing climate change.


CMCC Role

CMCC works for this project through the ISC (Impacts on Soil and Coast)  division. The ISC division, participates (with the CIRA) to the WP3 where the climate scenarios with a regional scale will be developed for those areas with major risk of landscapes and it also participates to WP4 where short-term meteorological models and models of air stability will be defined and used for the study and forecast of landslides.


Expected results

The project will develop an instrument to help the decision-making  processes connected to the prevention and management of landslides by identifing, according to the expected climate change, the European areas with major risks.


Activity
  • Regional climate scenarios processing with high resolution by using the COSMO-CLM model
  • Parameterization and development of the non-hydrostatic Cosmo – Lokal Model with a limited  area
  • Implementation of the meteo-frane modelling chain and use on selected test case

Partners
  • International Center for Geohazards Norwegian Geotechnical Institute
