Hydrological effect of vegetation against shallow landslides: a technical approach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Vegetation has been recognized as an effective and sustainable eco-engineering mitigation measure against shallow landslides.
However, its contribution has been largely attributed to the roots mechanical reinforcement while the hydrological effects have been
poorly quantified. Moreover, the effect of vegetation on slope stability will depend on many other factors and the assessment of its success
may be expensive and time consuming. The implementation of physically-based models may represent a time and cost-effective technique
for the assessment of the vegetation success for slope stabilisation, and assist in the optimisation of strategies before any intervention is
done. The aim of this paper is to assess the hydrological effect of vegetation against shallow landslides through a physically-based, open
source code model based on low cost and time effective requirements
