Geomorphological evolution of slopes and climate changes in Northern Italy during the Late Quaternary : spatial and temporal distribution of landslides and landscape sensitivity implications

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper deals with the use of landslide records in the analysis of landscape sensitivity, with particular reference to climate change as a forcing process. The dating of past landslide events is useful to reconstruct the evolution of a slope-system at a broad temporal scale and to recognize the different formative events it has experienced. The goal is to recognize the temporal changes through environmental factors which condition landsliding events such as climate, seismic activity, vegetation, and land use, trying to identify the relationship between landslide events and their initiating process, which is known to be complicated by the behaviour and the properties of the hillslope system, in other words its sensitivity. Case studies in the Alps and in the Northern Apennines are described and the research perspectives are outlined. - (NF)
