Nikolakopoulos Aggeliki Kyriou Ioannis K. Koukouvelas Intense long-duration rainfall or extreme precipitation in a few hours can provoke many simultaneous shallow landslides. In the past, the term multi-occurrence regional landslides (MORLEs) was proposed to describe such phenomena. In the current study, unmanned aerial vehicles in combination with a global navigation satellite system sensor and geographical informatio ..read more

If any indications of Quaternary fault activity are revealed, the fault displacement hazard should be evaluated. Signs of paleo-liquefaction were recently found at the nuclear site of Paks, Hungary, indicating the late-Pleistocene activity of the fault crossing the ..read more

Geosciences, Vol. 14, Pages 153: Geosites and Climate Change—A Review and Conceptual Framework Geosciences doi: 10.3390/geosciences14060153 Authors: Piotr Migoń Geosites are windows into the geological past, which may be recorded in rocks and their properties, the fossil content, and landform produced by processes no longer operating. Since the histories of sedimentation, life, and landscape evolution are to a certain extent controlled by climatic conditions, some geosites may be used as illustrations of various themes linked to the issue of climate change. In this paper, a coherent ..read more
