Landslide Susceptibility Mapping Using Fuzzy-AHP

Landslide Susceptibility Mapping Using Fuzzy-AHP Landslides are as the movement of soil on slopes that they are one of the most common natural hazards in many mountainous areas. Landslides are recognized as an important natural hazard in many countries. So in the study, the geographic information system-based the fuzzy quantifier is used to determinate the landslide susceptibility modeling in the north of Khorramabad, west of Kermanshah Province, Iran. To determine the landslide susceptibility modeling generated aspect, some input data were prepared such as the digital elevation model, lithology, slope, land use, river, road, fault, and precipitation maps. Fuzzy map showed that almost all of the area was medium landslide susceptibility that had the value close to 1. Fuzzy-AHP model showed that 77.62% of the study area had medium landslide susceptibility and this method was a useful tool for forecasting of landslide susceptibility status in each case study. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Geotechnical and Geological Engineering Springer Journals

Abstract

Landslides are as the movement of soil on slopes that they are one of the most common natural hazards in many mountainous areas. Landslides are recognized as an important natural hazard in many countries. So in the study, the geographic information system-based the fuzzy quantifier is used to determinate the landslide susceptibility modeling in the north of Khorramabad, west of Kermanshah Province, Iran. To determine the landslide susceptibility modeling generated aspect, some input data were prepared such as the digital elevation model, lithology, slope, land use, river, road, fault, and precipitation maps. Fuzzy map showed that almost all of the area was medium landslide susceptibility that had the value close to 1. Fuzzy-AHP model showed that 77.62% of the study area had medium landslide susceptibility and this method was a useful tool for forecasting of landslide susceptibility status in each case study.
