Abstract

This study evaluated the landslide hazard at Inje, Korea, using a geographic information system (GIS) and rainfall probabilistic data. The locations of landslides were identified in the study area by aerial photograph interpretation and field surveys. Data about rainfall probability, topography, and geology were collected, processed, and compiled in a spatial database using GIS. Then, the probability of landslides in the study area in recurrence interval years in the future was calculated assuming that landslides are triggered by a daily rainfall of 202 mm or a three-day cumulative rainfall of 449 mm. Twelve factors that influence landslide occurrence were chosen from a database of topography, soil, and forest cover. Landslide susceptibilities were analysed and mapped according to these landslide-occurrence factors, employing the frequency ratio method. Of the total landslide locations, 50% were used for hazard analysis and the remaining 50% were used for model validation. Validation results for the daily rainfall of 202 mm and three-day cumulative rainfall of 449 mm for recurrence interval years were from 89.22% to 91.80% and from 89.38% to 93.80%, respectively. This analysis of landslide hazards took rainfall probability into account. Rainfall, including heavy rainfall, is expected to increase in the future.
