Shallow landslides represent a relevant process in the alpine regions and are related to different types of risks. In addition to the direct damage on infrastructure and fatalities, shallow landslide activity plays an important role at the catchment scale by influencing the intensity and frequency of debris-flows or sediment transport during floods. Within the context of the standardization of natural hazard engineering and risk management, the main objective of this article is to give a short overview on the “state-of-the-art” for best practice methods and to promote a knowledge exchange on the characterization and quantification of shallow landslide processes in the Alpine region.
