A methodological approach for the analysis of the temporal occurrence and triggering factors of landslides

published at : Temporal stability and activity of landslides in Europe with respect to climatic change (TESLEC). Special issue


The temporal occurence of landslides in an area of the Cantabrian Range during the last 120,000 years is analyzed. An initial relative chronology was established on the basis of aging degree and spatial relationships between landslides and glacial and fluvial features. 10 landslide classes were thus identified and their chronological limits defined on the basis of 19 C 14 age determinations on fluvial and glacial deposits. The chronological classes identified were compared with existing climate models for the region; the type and spatial distribution of landslides in each class were also analysed
