Abstract

This contribution presents the outputs of multidisciplinary research carried out along the north-western coast of Malta aiming at landslide hazard assessment. The investigated area extends on a surface of 15 km2 and it is situated between Paradise Bay and Il-Pelegrin promontory. Elevation ranges from the sea level to about 120 m of altitude. The stability conditions of this stretch of coast are deeply controlled by a linkage of different factors, such as tectonics and lithology, which control the landslide onset. Landslides certainly make up a predominant geomorphological feature in this area and they have been investigated in detail by means of mapping, monitoring and modelling since 2005 by a composite team of Italian researchers supported by Maltese institutions.
