Landslides analysis using geological, geotechnical and geophysical data from experimental measurements in Prahova County

Cornelia Dobrescu, Elena Călăraşu, Marius Stoica

Rezumat/Abstract. The landslide that is the subject of this paper occurred in Prahova County. The present work was carried out to study the spatial influence of geological and morphological factors upon landslide occurrence on a local scale by using geotechnical and geophysical methods in order to determine local trigger parameters. The input data for the slope-stability analysis were collected from topographic investigations, geological mapping. In addition, soil geotechnical parameters were collated from a series of in situ tests. A geophysical survey was applied by using vertical electrical soundings in order to detect the existence and continuity of a potential sliding surface.
