Abstract
The analysis of the three-dimensional rockfall scar geometry provides clues for the understanding of the failure mechanisms acting on cliffs, of the conditioning factors, and on the frequency of the events. In this paper, a supervised step-by-step methodology is presented for establishing the statistical magnitude–frequency relation of rockfall scar volumes, using a point cloud from Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) data. The methodology includes a procedure for identifying discontinuity surface...
