In a recently published article we assess the potential of simulated soil moisture for regional landslide early warning. For this study, soil moisture variation was simulated with a physically-based 1D soil water transfer model and forecasst goodness for landslides was assessed using a statistical landslide forecast model. In direct comparison with in-situ measured soil moisture we found that the overall representativeness for regional landslide occurence is high, however that it is particularly challenging to well characterize critical antecedent wetness conditions.
