  • The first part of this paper gives the results of a study of the temporal dimensions of mass movements which was carried out by the European Centre for Geomorphological Risks in 1993. The time terminoloy was often inaccurate or incomplete, so
  • the A. has tried to clarify concepts such as the state and mode of activity, dormancy, the return time and the age of a movement. The second part sets out a few principles which may be helpful in applying these cartographic concepts in maps of various scales

  • After a geological and geomorphological description, the distribution in space and time of landslides which occurred in the surroundings of Cortina d'Ampezzo is presented. The type, activity, frequency and, when possible, the age of mass movements
  • have been outlined. Furthermore, special attention is focused on the landslides active at present which are reactivations of ancient movements. The results from the monitoring systems, which were installed in order to survey kinematic and hydrogeologic
  • parameters and define the movement rate, are shown.

  • After a review of some analytical and conceptual models of slope evolution with the intervention of mass movements, a proposal is made of a series of indicators for the quantitative description of landscape evolution in relation to mass movements
  • . The ratio between landslide mobilisation rate and downwearing rate is proposed as a quantitative measure of the significance of mass movements in landscape evolution. A subdivision of European regions with respect to their susceptibility to landsliding

  • tested obtaining new sediment records and dating sixteen additional samples. The distribution and relative chronology of slope movements in a study area are presented. A correlation between occurence of mass movements and climate changes is proposed. Thhe
  • volumes affected by these movements in different periods have been calculated and rates have been obtained.

  • : a lower threshold for the onset of movement and an upper threshold for catastrophic failure. A second aim was to assess the temporal variation of the viscosity index and to find out whether there is a trend to strain softening of the material (lowering

  • This paper examines the evolution of a large-scale earthflow located in the northern sector of the Marche Region. In this area, mass movements of different typology are particularly frequent since geological and geomorphological conditions often
  • favour slope instability. Systematic investigations were carried out by means of photo interpretation and field survey. The past behaviour of this mass movement as well as its predisposing and triggering factors are briefly analysed, also aiming
