PESERA-L: an addendum to simulate shallow mass movement Print

PESERA-L is an addendum to PESERA, modelling sediment yield due to shallow mass movment in a watershed. It was developed to simulate the shallow landslides which are the main land degradation problem in the Rendina study site.


PESERA-L website


The PESERA-L model is released as a freeware software for the scientific community. PESERA-L has been designed to operate as additional unit to the PESERA model framework. However, PESERA-L can also operate independently for landslide degree of instability, sediment yield, and degree of degradation by landslide assessment.


PESERA-L operates (both input and output file) with common ASCII grid files (common ARCGIS, ASCII grid raster file format) and ASCII text file (CVS format) structured for an easy exchange with EXCEL spreadsheet. The software use a graphic rendering by help of GNUPLOT 4.4.2 graphic engine distributed as open source (GPL license) and redistributable wihin PESERA-L. In this way the input/output raster files can easily viewed, and exported directly by the program without more complex GIS software. A simple GUI front end allow an easy interaction with the user.
