The prognostication of mudflows in the Ukrainian Carpathians
Purpose. The aim of the research is to elucidate the regularity of the mudflow growth processes, depending on the factors that cause them and to the regional time-spatial prognostication of mudflow hazard using GIS. Methods. Using GIS technologies relevant and representative complex of significant factors due to the character of influence has been selected and suggested for usage in the regional prognostication of mudflows hazard. Geological, geomorphological, technological, climatic, landscape factors have been selected as spatial mudflow factors.
