Round table discussion

„State of the art of landslide susceptibility modelling:
Application in Adriatic-Balkan Region“

25 March 2022 | 10:00-12:45 | Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Rijeka| on-line Zoom



Paola Reichenbach and Snjezana Mihalic Arbanas, coordinators of the WLF5 Theme 2 „From Mapping to Hazard and Risk Zonation“ are organising Round Table Discussion with the objective to discuss, between participants of the 5th Regional Symposium on Landslides, good practice on landslide susceptibility modeling and zonation. 




Applications of landslide susceptibility modelling in countries in the Adriatic-Balkan Region (Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, R.N. Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina)


Discussion themes


   Recommendations on landslide susceptibility zonation (landslide types, sources of landslide information, sources of geo-environmental information, mapping units and model types, model performance evaluation, use of landslide susceptibility)

   Data and modeling scale and possible applications

   Future challenges in the Adriatic-Balkan Region

   Possible contributions to World Landslide Forum 6, Florence
