Post.doc project: Physical modelling of landslide initiation

Dr. Luca Schiliro from University of Rome is a Post Doc at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute - NGI from January to early July 2016. He is engaged in physical modelling of landslide initiation at regional scale as part of the activities in WP3 "Hydro-meteorologically induced landslides". The study area of Luca is Gudsbrandsdalen, and the events used for calibration are the landslide incidents in 2011 and 2013. The work is carried out in close collaboration with NVE, particularly with the team responsible for the debris flow warning system.
