Abstract [en]

The Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) is commissioned by the Swedish government to perform risk assessment for landslides within the national climate change adaptation allowance. Our commission includes mapping the risks in present and future climate conditions. Making use of material from the previously completed Göta River valley Investigation (GRI), SGI identified and prioritized Swedish watercourses for landslide risk mapping (Bergdahl et al in 2013). The Nors River valley was chosen as a pilot area for the development of a simplified methodology for landslide risk mapping. The investigation along the river is based on the methodology that was developed within the GRI. It aims to provide a sufficient basis for planners in municipalities and county administrative boards in their work with prioritization and preparation of adaptation measures. Methodological development has been carried out in order to reduce the costs of investigation and to simplify the interpretation of the maps, thereby increasing the societal relevance and usability of the results. The landslide risk analysis along the Nors River valley has resulted in a comprehensive overview of the risk of landslides in the present and future climate, for built-up as well as yet undeveloped land and areas with vital infrastructure. The methodology for risk mapping, that has been developed, is applicable for landslide risk mapping along other streams and river valleys. The resulting maps are made available in a free GIS Webb application, accustomed to the users of the information.
