LAMPRE produces scientific knowledge advancements on landslide phenomena relevant for the international scientific community and contributing to strenghten the European Reserach Area, and in particular:

LAMPRE addresses different scientific needs, including:

  • Understanding the relationship between climate and landslides and development of better models for fast landslides.
  • Short-term prediction of landslide activity, including the use of models and GIS.
  • Improving regional landslide susceptibility assessment models
  • Understanding on vulnerability to landslides 
  • Investigating and advancing numerical modelling to forecast landslide impact, and to design landslide impact scenarios
  • Developing geo-information processing tools for preparedness and for recovery
  • Defining standards for production and validation of landslide inventory and susceptibility maps
  • Enhancing the operational capacity of Copernicus (ex GMES) core and downstream services

LAMPRE addresses the needs of Regional and Local Authorities who manage crisis events and emergency or natural/ecological resources and deal with the direct or indirect economic and ecologic consequences of landslides, and also public organizations and private companies managing, monitoring, and maintaining transportation networks, and responsible for safety of people and materials transiting along transportation networks.

Civil Protection Authorities (CPAs) at National, Regional and Local level

LAMPRE delivers EO-based products and services which empower the operational capacity of CPA to manage the landslides disaster cycle, in particular for preparedness/mitigation & recovery/reconstruction phases.

Organizations that manage transportation networks

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as managing expectations of probabilities of landslides intersecting different types of transportation networks.

Environmental, agricultural and forestry agencies

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as mapping and assessing landslide probability, and impact on blocked roads and rivers, including contribution of landslides to sediment changes in the system.

Policy and decision makers

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as estabilshing standards and procedures for landslide hazard evaluation.

The GEO-X and 2014 Ministerial Summit had one major outcome, which is Ministers – through a declaration – to decide the continuation of GEO after 2015 and give a mandate to define the “Second Implementation Plan 2025”. The Ministers are also expected to review the progress against the GEOSS Strategic Targets and to confirm their commitment to complete the current 2005-2015 Implementation Plan.

Landslide hazard assessment and risk reduction requires synergic linkages between all users (operational and scientific) involved with different tasks and responsibilities in landslide risk management.

Products, services and other outcomes of LAMPRE, including geo-processing tools, landslide inventory and susceptibility maps, vulnerability and impact assessments, standards and best practices, can offer real benefits to a wide range of users.

The project talks to four main groups:

GEO banner l16 January 2014, Brussels, Belgium - During the Geo Week several meetings and side events will take place. In particular, an event entitled 'Copernicus Today and Tomorrow', will be organised on the 16th of January from 14.30–16.30. It will present the status and recent developments of each of the six Copernicus services and will provide a future perspective of the Programme, focusing, in particular, on the envisaged new satellite capabilities. In addition, European Commission's recently adopted Delegated Act on Data Policy and Information Services will also be presented.

El PortaletThe study area is located in upper part of Valle de Tena, the headwaters of the Gállego River in the central Spanish Pyrenees (Huesca), where climate is characterized by a marked seasonality, classified as of the mediterranean mountain type with Atlantic and Continental influences. The average annual precipitation is around 1500 mm with rainfall concentrated mainly in spring and autumn, followed by winter and with punctual intense convective storms during the summer. 

21 November 2013, Bruxelles, Belgium - Fausto Guzzetti (CNR-IRPI) gave a presentation on “Remote Sensing for Detection, Mapping & Monitoring of Landslides & Ground Deformations” at the international workshop organised by the Research Executive Agency (REA).
