Abstract
Rainfall-induced shallow landslides and debris flows represent a significant geomorphological hazard in mountainous regions. The development of early warning systems (EWS) is key in order to anticipate the hazard prior to the event and to improve the response of emergency actions. However, operational EWS are very scarce around the world, especially at regional or national scale. EWS for rainfall-induced shallow landslides and debris flows are based on the combination of debris flow susceptibili...
