Short summary
A coupled empirical approach for studying possible correlations among rainfall, vegetation segmentation, and landslide occurrence is applied over the Esino river basin, central Italy. This approach represents an attempt to find both the timing and location of landslides, through an empirical (black box) analysis. Results verify an intensity-duration minimum threshold for the study area (when) and define core areas and fragmented vegetation structures most susceptible to landslides (where).
