Abstract [en]

The predicted effects of the ongoing climate change such as increased precipitation and longer dry periods are expected to result in an increased frequency of landslides in Sweden. In order to meet this challenge, the Swedish Government commissioned the Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) to investigate and assess the landslide risk in the Göta river valley, which is one of the Swedish valleys with the highest landslide frequency and where consequences of a landslide could be severe due to the number of large industrial sites as well as residential areas and infrastructure. A mapping of the landslide risk considering both present conditions and the effects of a future climate change has been performed. The investigation shows that climate change will increase the risk of landslides in the valley. However, it also shows that high level of risk is already estimated in many areas which can be affected even in today's climate.
