Landslides in Buda (Stemnic) catchment
Keywords:landslide, GIS, distribution, Buda Stream (Stemnic)
Landslides are part of the gravity action processes, constituting one of the major hazards that can cause material and human damages. The research of these processes implies complex analysis, which includes factors that must be systematically analyzed. The presence of the sloping terrain constitutes the main factor of the action of gravity force. The morphometric indices, including the relief energy, slope inclination and their length have a substantial contribution in maintaining a favorable energetic potential in mass movement deployment processes. Means of computerized analysis are useful in the analysis of the processes, such a method to mapping and identification of landslides is considered to be Geographic Informational Systems (GIS).
