About this Research Topic
Landslides are one of the most dangerous geomorphological processes on Earth, responsible for loss of human lives and damages to structures, infrastructures, cultural and natural heritage. During the Anthropocene, the impacts of human activity on the environment, including rapid changes of the Earth's climate, have caused deep alterations to the natural evolution of surficial geologic processes causing a progressive increase in landslides occurrence.
The goal of this Research Topic is to give an updated overview of the progress in landslides research field considering all the aspects related to those phenomena, from the geomorphological characterization and the understanding of the triggering and predisposing factors, to the new technologies applied to the study of evolution of slope phenomena and the new methodologies to foresee and mitigate related hazard.
