Soil Erosion and Landslides Risk Management

Raluca SFIRU, Petru CARDEI, Vergil MURARU and Vasile HEREA    

Abstract: This paper presents a simple and inexpensive alternative risk management of surface soil erosion and landslides for vineyards farms. The application is cheap because it uses very cheap or even free of charge techniques and tools. Furthermore, this method can be also applied and used for other type of farms. At the same time, the method can be applied to any land and not only for the risk management of the soil erosion and landslides, but also for managing data and records of land parcels with different uses. The main idea is using free GIS software in order to obtain the necessary geometric data required for the relevant area relief. GIS software can archive geometrical characteristics of terrain data, soil data, vegetation covering data, etc. Risk estimators calculation is achieved by two basic models of soil erosion and landslides. Risk maps are performed using the same GIS software.
