Synopsis:

Landslides - introduction: what is a landslide, why and how it arises, basic input data for assessing the stability of a territory. Types of landslides and classification, characteristics, lands prone to landslides, CGS / USGS. Mechanical description, slope stability calculation methods (limit equilibrium, numerical methods). Input parameters for assessing the stability of the territory, methods of detection (laboratory / field tests). Triggering effects - sensitivity to input parameters for stability calculations. Modeling and reverse analysis of landslides, verification of tightness of outputs - monitoring requirements. Case studies.

Floods: Hydrological bases, measurements, uncertainties, climate change and affected data. Modeling in hydrology and surface water flow - numerical models. Reducing the consequences of floods - vulnerability analyzes, technical and soft measures, physical models. Critical infrastructure objects - flood handling and management. Case studies of natural and special floods from the Czech Republic and abroad.
