LAND - Special Issue ’’Landslide Hazard and Environment Risk Assessment’’ - scadenza invio contributi: 30/03/2021
Dear Colleagues,

We contacted you last time in August, regarding a Special Issue 
published in the LAND Journal (ISSN 2073-445X, IF 2.429). /Prof. 
Enrico Miccadei, Dr. Cristiano Carabella, and Dr. Giorgio Paglia/ are 
serving as Guest Editors for this issue. Based on your expertise in 
this field, we think you could make an excellent contribution.

Landslides are global geomorphological phenomena occurring in all 
geographic regions in response to a wide range of triggering factors. 
Landsliding is linked to the combination of geological, 
geomorphological, and climatic factors in response to trigger 
mechanisms mostly represented by heavy rainfall events, seismicity, or 
human action. Landslides directly and indirectly impact a territory, 
causing fatalities and huge socioeconomic losses also due to 
environmental degradation and rapid population growth, which requires 
correct land use policies and best practices for long-term risk 
mitigation and reduction. In this context, geomorphological field 
activities, satellite remote sensing, and numerical modeling offer 
effective support for mapping and monitoring the activity of 
landslides at both the local and regional scales.

We would like to invite you to participate in this Special Issue, 
which will focus primarily on such innovative methods to accurately 
investigate landslide phenomena providing useful products to 
characterize landslide risk management. All landslide types are 
considered, from fast rockfalls to debris flows and from slow-moving 
slides to very rapid rock avalanches. All climatic and geographical 
scales are considered, from the local to the global, including 
individual and multiple slope failures.
