Title: Hydrogeological monitoring and image analysis of a mudslide in Southern Italy

Abstract: This paper describes a methodological example of a data-integration procedure to improve the knowledge of landslide hazard related to a seismic area in the southern Apennine (Italy). Attention is focused on remote sensing data. The analysis is validated using detailed topographical, geophysical, geotechnical and hydrogeological data as ground truth. The investigated phenomenon, which started at the end of 1993, is an earthflow. The presented methodology recommends the combined use of DEM, multi-temporal panchromatic visible aerial photographs and thermal infrared images. The integration between these data and multidisciplinary monitoring data proved useful. The main hydrogeological pattern, the geological and geomorphological framework and the areas of latent instability can be clearly determined. Insight can be gained through the synoptic slope view in the relative short time needed to carry out the analysis. The proposed approach can be regarded as a useful contribution to the evaluation of landslide hazard, particularly during emergency periods.
