LEWS fact sheets

LEWS fact sheets is an ongoing LandAware eLearning Working Group project, initiated and led by Michele Calvello and Anne Felsberg. The project aims to highlight “at a glance” the main characteristics of operational landslide early warning systems. To this end, a single-slide template has been designed to be both visually appealing and informative, and to be able to provide synthetic, exhaustive and instructive information on each LEWS addressed. Each fact sheet also includes links to main references and further readings, directing readers to resources where more details on the systems are available. The fact sheets produced and published so far are shown below.
