The Stream Length-Gradient (SL) index is used to detect knickpoints potentially related to surface and sub-surface deformation processes. In this work, the SL index has been calculated along streams draining the southern sector of the Emilia-Romagna Region within the Northern Apennines (Italy), to detect knickpoints associated with ac- tive la...

Recognition and assessment of sinkholes as geosites: lessons from the Island of Gozo (Malta) There is a wide literature on sinkhole or doline classification, formation and evolution. However, despite the fact that they are often characterised by spectacular morphological features, sinkholes are not normally described as geological resources which m...
Article
Sinkholes in karst areas disrupt transportation route serviceability causing significant direct and indirect economic losses and may lead to accidents involving fatalities. A quantitative procedure has been developed to identify the most suitable mitigation designs for a road recently built in an area with a very high probability of sinkhole occurr...
Article
This work presents a methodology for elaborating sinkhole hazard models that incorporate the magnitude and frequency relationships of the subsidence process. The proposed approach has been tested in a sector of the Ebro valley mantled evaporite karst, where sinkholes, largely induced by irrigation practices, have a very high occurrence rate (>50 si...
Article
Multiple sinkhole susceptibility models have been generated in three study areas of the Ebro Valley evaporite karst (NE Spain) applying different methods (nearest neighbour distance, sinkhole density, heuristic scoring system and probabilistic analysis) for each sinkhole type separately (cover collapse sinkholes, cover and bedrock collapse sinkhole...

Lateral spreading and block sliding are often associated in nature causing large rock blocks to progressively separate from a cliff (i.e. lateral spreading) and slowly slide down the slope of a hillside (i.e. block sliding). These large landslides generate landscapes with distinctive landforms that have been valued as part of the geological heritag...
Article
Megafans are ever-evolving landforms and sedimentary bodies produced by rivers that regularly change their courses through avulsions, in which the processes that cause the avulsions and their rates are tightly linked to the formation and evolution of the fans. The commonly cited condition required for the formation of megafans is a highly variable...

The SAR Interferometry techniques, Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) among them, are nowadays known as important tools for monitoring Earth surface movements. Several regional and national Ground Motion Services based on PSI already exist. Moreover, since 2022 the European Ground Motion Service will be operational and will annually provide...
Article
This paper describes a model for the prediction of sinkhole collapse for two-dimensional and axisymmetric conditions. The model explains the arching effect on the threshold of collapse by a catenary arch or dome that tries to redirect the self-weight of the unstable soil to the adjacent stable mass. The collapse mechanism considers the vertical dis...

Exploration of territories not previously analyzed by landslide experts provides interesting findings. The Chgega landslide, in northern Tunisia, represents a paradigmatic mass movement. It can be classified as a complex landslide, or more specifically as vast rock spreading that evolved into a block slide. It involves a great block of limestone-ab...

A combined method was developed to forecast the spatial and the temporal probability of occurrence of rainfall-induced shallow landslides over large areas. The method also allowed to estimate the dynamic change of this probability during a rainfall event. The model, developed through a data-driven approach basing on Multivariate Adaptive Regression...

Data-driven methodologies are widely used for the reconstruction of shallow landslide susceptibility maps. The outputs of these models strictly depend on the type of landslide inventories used for the modelling. Thus, this work performed a deep analysis of the role of different inventories on the definition of shallow landslide susceptibility of a...

Some landslides around the world that have low-angle failure planes show exceptionally poor mechanical properties. In some cases, an extraordinarily pure clay layer has been detected on the rupture surface. In this work, a complex landslide, the so-called Diezma landslide, is investigated in a low- to moderate-relief region of Southeast Spain. In t...

Geomorphological indices, such as the Stream Length-Gradient (SL) index, have been demonstrated to be suitable for detecting anomalies in stream-profiles. These anomalies (knickpoints) are generally related to active tectonics, lithological changes and large mass movements. This study aims to detect drainage areas affected by mass movements using S...

In this paper, we define the Camorro Fault as one of the several faults in the Torcal de Antequera Massif (MTA). Such massif is located in the central sector of the Torcal Shear Zone (ZCT). The Camorro Fault was previously defined as a dextral strike-slip fault, but field observations let us propose its recent transition to a normal fault regime. T...

Extensional denudation in the western Mediterranean formed deep basins in the core of subduction-related orogenic arcs. It has contributed to the exhumation of metamorphic rocks in the hinterland of the Betics, Appenines, Rif and Tell. However, fewer cases have been described of extensional denudation affecting Foreland Thrust Belts (FTB). Here we...

Lateral spreading forms when fractured rocks or soil mass slide slowly over a softer underlying material. In this work, we studied two cases, one in the south of Spain and other in the north of Tunisia. Both are rock spreadings and occur along shear or tensile fractures. These mass movements involve in almost all cases rocks and occur along shear o...
