GeoHazards Connections

On May 12th, Mateo Moreno gave a presentation on findings in the data-driven analyses for the PROSLIDE project. The talk was part of the online conference GeoHazards Connections (Connexions géorisque), which is an initiative of the Geohazards Committee of the Canadian Geotechnical Society (Comité sur les géorisques de la Société canadienne de géotechnique).

Since its inception in 2021, GeoHazards Connections is a recurring online conference that aims to connect graduate students to each other and to practitioners.  While only graduate students may present, members of academia, industry, and government are all invited to attend and participate in the Q&A discussions following each presentation (see more here).


As announced before, last week we had the chance to participate in  European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2023 and share with the scientific community our findings within the PROSLIDE project. We received positive feedback, and hold interesting discussions on the project.

In summary, Mateo Moreno and Lotte de Vugt gave two oral presentations in session NH3.6 – Space and time forecasting of landslides. The presentations were entitled  Functional regression for space-time prediction of precipitation-induced shallow landslides in South Tyrol, Italy (abstract here) and Improving the performance of a dynamic slope stability model (TRIGRS) with integrated spatio-temporal precipitation data (abstract here).




Stefan Steger gave an oral presentation on A data-driven approach to derive spatially explicit dynamic “thresholds” for shallow landslide occurrence in South Tyrol (abstract here) as part of the session Towards reliable landslide early warning systems.
