ABSTRACT

This case study presented herein describes physically based susceptibility
mapping in Avutmuş-Sebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey) and its vicinity using
the SINMAP model. Sebinkarahisar has been recognized as a landslide-prone
area. Landslides in this area caused several hazards in the houses and farming
areas. In view of landslide re-occurrence potential in this area and its close
environ, understanding of the failure mechanism is highly crucial. In order to
predict the future landslides in the area and its vicinity, physically (SINMAP)
based landslide susceptibility map was prepared by use of GIS. Validation of the
map indicated a high quality susceptibility map for shallow landslides.

Keywords: Toe erosion, Sebinkarahisar (Giresun-Turkey), landslide,
