Abstract

This paper presents deterministic 3D stability analyses using LS-Rapid software applied to the wider area of the Grohovo landslide on the north-eastern slope of the Rječina River Valley near the city of Rijeka, Croatia. Results of these analyses, in combination with results of existing monitoring data, are necessary for predicting future landslide behavior as a base for establishing an early warning system at the Grohovo landslide.

Equipment used in the study was obtained with financial support from the SATREPS [Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development] program, financed by the Japan Science and Technology Agency and Japan International Cooperation Agency through the Project Risk Identification and Land-Use Planning for Disaster Mitigation of Landslides and Floods in Croatia. This support is gratefully acknowledged.

This work is an expanded version of the paper published and presented on the 1st Regional Symposium of Landslides in the Adriatic-Balkan Region and the 3rd Workshop of the Croatian-Japanese Project “Risk Identification and Land-Use Planning for Disaster Mitigation of Landslides and Floods in Croatia”.
