Objectives
2. To develop multi-scale hydrological and landslide processes modelling algorithms to simulate the complex hazard processes and their interactions under extreme rainstorms; 3. To develop a multi-hazard risk assessment approach to evaluate the combined impact of landslides, debris flows and flooding in the Hong Kong metropolitan setting; 4. To establish a unique stress testing framework for evaluating the effectiveness of the Hong Kong slope safety system; 5. To make recommendations for improved slope safety system.
