Disaster Research Days (DRD) 2021 – Disaster Competence Network Austria

On October 20th, Lotte de Vugt presented her work on the construction of a more detailed landslide inventory of the August 5th 2016 storm event in the Passeier valley during the Disaster Research Day Seminars of the DNCA (Disaster Competence Network Austria). The title of the presentation was: “Compilation of event-based shallow landslide inventories based on high-resolution earth observation imagery – a test case in the Passeier valley (South Tyrol, Italy)”.

The figure below shows how the more detailed landslide inventory constructed with Planetscope and RapidEye imagery compares to the national italian inventory (IFFI). The abstract of the presentation can be found here, in the linked “Konferenzband”: https://www.dcna.at/index.php/de/drd21-de.html
