The U-Geohaz project is focused on monitoring geohazard-associated ground deformations, a key prevention action that will be specifically addressed to urban areas and critical infrastructures. The project will propose a procedure to produce maps to assess continuously the potential impact of geohazard activity. These maps will provide essential inputs to support early warning, giving information on the stability of the monitored areas and their expected damage and degree loss. In particular, the project will provide tools to support early warning (EW) systems for landslides and rock-falls, and an EW system for volcanic geohazard. The main output of the project will be the development of new products for multi-geohazard prevention purposes and the demonstration of its potentialities by implementing their use in the involved CPAs.
