Abstract

The northeastern part of Pakistan is known to be a region of extremes, where the highest reliefs of the world are and where the geology can be considered young from an orgogeny point of view. In this environment, a big multidisciplinary project, named SEED (Social, Economic and Environmental Development in the CKNP Region Project), is taken by Ev-K2-CNR project. SEED is made by several different projects, each one focused on a different theme (e.g. glaciology, meteorology, land cover) that permit to characterize, from different points of view, the new Central Karakorum National Park. One of it is focused on a better knowledge of the territory trough the analysis of the hazardous areas, important instrument to for a future rational planning. The geostatic evidences, better known as landslides, will be firstly identified using a new generation of high quality DTM (Digital Terrain Model) at a spatial resolution better than the one obtained through traditional techniques. These high quality data permit to individuate different slope morphologies and to recognize possible geostatic phenomena. The methodology will permit to identify the geostatic phenomena that will be secondarily identified on the field, only in sample areas in order to validate the tool. This permit to create the first, upgradable in real time, landslide inventory for the area of the Central Karakorum National Park.
