Landslides are one of the natural hazards, which have significant negative effects on both humans and the environment. Thus, slope stability analyses and stabilization processes are necessary to obviate or mitigate landslides. In this study, the effect of groundwater level fluctuations and the construction of a building (i.e., a recently built chur...

Landslides are one of the natural hazards, that have a destructive impact on the environment and humans. Hungary is subject to several landslides such as on the eastern slope of Avas hill, Miskolc, NE of Hungary. In the 70's before the urbanization in the study area, soil movements were taking place, which had become more frequent with the built-up...

Natural hazards such as landslides, floods, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes have remarkable negative effects, not only on humans but the environment as well. In this work, we provide long-term sides’ stability of the Avas hill to reduce the effect landslide hazards. The mass movement in the investigated area is minimized via constructing a reta...

Overall objective of the Project: The project aims to minimize flood risk in the Upper‐Tisza River Basin by mapping and analysing dikes and critical sections of flood plains. By applying the methodology that will be developed in order to achieve this goal, flood control professionals will gain valuable information when making decisions, and this method will not only greatly reduce the risk but also increase flood prevention and control. The project contributes to TO8, Priority 1, as the project aims at flood safety, which is in the common interest of 4 neighbouring countries. The project will contribute to making a stronger cross border cooperation among the Hungarian‐Slovakian‐Romanian‐Ukrainian organizations and stakeholders in the Upper‐Tisza region, for flood risk reduction, to reduce the risk of adverse effects on human health and life, the environment, cultural heritage, economic activities and infrastructure and to provide more effective protective measures More information and news can be found on: https://dikeinspect.uni-miskolc.hu/

The main objective of the research is to investigate the slope stability problems of Avas hill. The specific aims are to collect data from previous investigations. Besides, analyzing the current situations after the results of in-situ testing methods, to prevent the collapse of buildings such as the reformed church (AvasDél Lakótelepi Reformed Parish), and build up a conceptual model of the investigated area and make recommendations for the future retaining system. By using soft wares to determine the slope stability and the suitable retaining wall by using Geo5, and using a surfer program to design the geological engineering model of the study area.
