LANDSLIDE RISK MANAGEMENT USING THE MATHEMATICAL MODEL TRIGRS
Gestão de riscos a deslizamentos de terra utilizando o modelo matemático TRIGRS
Landslides are recurrent events in Brazil, usually triggered by intense rainfall. When these events occur in urban areas, they end up becoming disasters due to economic damage, social impact, and loss of human life. The identification and monitoring of landslide-prone areas are crucial to avoid fatalities. Therefore, the aims of this work are a temporal analysis of the Factor of Safety variation in Campos do Jordão, using the mathematical model TRIGRS. During the analyzed period, two heavy rainfall events were recorded in the area and triggered landslides. The results show TRIGRS efficiency in correctly identify landslide-prone areas and its applicability to become a useful tool for urban planning and early warning systems.
