The aim of DARFLIS is to improve the current state of knowledge of the areas at risk in the subalpine territory of Lombardia region and to develop a reliable strategy for quantitative hazard assessment of rainfall-induced flow slides and debris flows. In particular, the project will provide a methodological path to define the potential unstable volume, the propagation, the arrest and the possible interaction with existing structures, infrastructures or protective works. This could sign a major step forward with respect to common rainfall thresholding by differentiating sources according to the triggering probability and the expected evolution (sliding or flowing). Guidelines for the optimization of the design of mitigation measures will be also provided.
