Article
Most of time, landslide in Malaysia was triggered by heavy rainfall during monsoon season. Landslides disaster in Malaysia are managed by Public Work Department (JKR) via Slope Engineering Branch (CKC), Department of Mineral and Geosciences (JMG), and Malaysian Space Agency (Agensi Angkasa Malaysia). JKR was critically engaged in slope remediation...
Article
Landslide activity identification is critical for landslide inventory mapping. A detailed landslide inventory map is highly required for various purposes such as landslide susceptibility, hazard, and risk assessments. This paper proposes a novel approach based on vegetation anomalies indicator (VAI) and applying machine learning method namely suppo...

This paper introduced a novel method of landslide activity mapping using vegetation anomalies indicators (VAIs) obtained from high resolution remotely sensed data. The study area was located in a tectonically active area of Kundasang, Sabah, Malaysia. High resolution remotely sensed data were used to assist manual landslide inventory process and pr...
Article
Landslide is a destructive natural hazard that causes severe property loss and loss of lives. Numerous researchers have developed landslide susceptibility maps in order to forecast its occurrence, particularly in hill-site development. Various quantitative approaches are used in landslide susceptibility map production, which can be classified into...

Estimating surface elevation changes in mangrove forests requires a technique to filterthe mangrove canopy and quantify the changes underneath. Hence, this study estimates surfaceelevation changes underneath the mangrove canopy through vegetation filtering and Difference ofDEM (DoD) techniques using two epochs of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) data...
Article
Global sea level is expected to rise consistently in the future, causing severe damage to the coastal areas and threatening nearby populations. Malaysian coast has numerous low-lying areas, which are at risk of inundation resulting from the increment of sea level, particularly in Kelantan coast. In this study, the potential vulnerability impact of...

The future model of riverbank erosion is essential to predict the impacts on affected areas due to the phenomenon of riverbank erosion. However, how close the model is to the exact location depends on the historical assessment and dynamic factor, including the direction of erosion, the common area, and the average distance. This study aims to predi...

Coastal vulnerability Index (CVI), is one of the predictive approaches to coastal classification by incorporating various coastal variables. This approach is favoured in the coastal investigation as it simplifies a number of complex parameters. However, it comes greatly as to why such assessment is developed in the first place; a) to facilitate coa...

Evaluating water level changes at intertidal zones is complicated because of dynamic tidal inundation. However, water level changes during different tidal phases could be evaluated using a digital surface model (DSM) captured by unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with higher vertical accuracy provided by a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Imag...

In Malaysia, issues related to disaster management are always given attention in society and by the responsible parties. However, in general, citizen do not think of the consequential impact of disaster due to less of knowledge regarding the early phase in disaster management. Therefore, citizen in those areas will be more vulnerable to landslide a...

Vulnerability identifies the element-at-risk as well as the evaluation of their relationships with the hazard. The relationships relate the landslide potential damages over a specific element-at-risk. Vulnerability can be defined as the degree of loss to a given element-at-risk or set of elements at risk resulting from the occurrence of a natural p...

Remote sensing has been widely used for landslide inventory mapping and monitoring. Landslide activity is one of the important parameters for landslide inventory and it can be strongly related to vegetation anomalies. Previous studies have shown that remotely sensed data can be used to obtain detailed vegetation characteristics at various scales an...
