Automatic division system source code of slope unit based on confluence analysis and slope direction Division

1) The work of automatically dividing a wide and complex geospatial area or even a complete watershed into repeatable and geomorphically consistent topographic units is still in the stage of theoretical concept, and there are great challenges in practical operation. Terrain unit is a further subdivision of topography and geomorphology, which can ensure the maximum uniformity of geomorphic features in slope unit and the maximum heterogeneity between different units. It is suitable for geomorphic or hydrological modeling, landslide detection in remote sensing images, landslide sensitivity analysis and geological disaster risk assessment. 2) Slope unit is an important type of topographic unit. Slope unit is defined as the area surrounded by watershed and catchment line. In fact, the area surrounded by watershed and catchment line is often multiple slopes or even a small watershed. Theoretically, each slope unit needs to ensure the maximum internal homogeneity and the maximum heterogeneity between different units. The slope unit is an area with obviously different topographic characteristics from the adjacent area. These topographic characteristics can be based on the characteristics of catchment or drainage boundary, slope and slope direction, such as ridge line, valley line, platform boundary, valley bottom boundary and other geomorphic boundaries. According to the high-precision digital elevation model, the slope unit with appropriate scale and quality can be drawn manually, but the manual drawing method is time-consuming and error prone. The quality of the divided slope unit depends on the subjective experience of experts, which is suitable for small-scale areas and has no wide and universal application value. Aiming at the gap in practical operation in this field, we propose an innovative modeling software system to realize the optimal division of slope units. Automatic division system of slope unit based on confluence analysis and slope direction division v1 0, written in Python programming language, runs and calculates as the grass GIS interpolation module, and realizes the automatic division of slope units in a given digital elevation data and a set of predefined parameters. 4) Based on python programming language, the code is flexible and changeable, which is suitable for scientific personnel with different professional knowledge to make a wide range of customization and personalized customization. In addition, the software can provide high-quality slope unit division results, reflect the main geomorphic characteristics of the region, and provide a based evaluation unit for fine landslide disaster evaluation and prediction. It can serve regional land use planning, disaster risk assessment and management, disaster emergency response under extreme induced events (earthquake or rainfall, etc.), and has great practical guiding significance for the selection of landslide monitoring equipment and the reasonable and effective layout and operation of early warning network. It can be popularized and applied in areas with serious landslide development.

Regional landslide sensitivity analysis system source code based on optimal combination strategy

1) In mountainous areas, due to the complex topographic and geological background conditions, landslides are very easy to occur triggered by external factors such as rainfall, snow melting, earthquake and human engineering activities, resulting in the loss of life and property and the destruction of the natural environment. In order to meet the safety of project site construction, the rationality of land use planning and the urgent needs of disaster mitigation, it is necessary to carry out regional landslide sensitivity evaluation. When many different evaluation results are obtained by using a variety of different methods, how to effectively combine these results to obtain the optimal prediction is a technical problem that is still not difficult to solve at present. It is still very lack in determining the optimal strategy and operation execution of the optimal method for landslide sensitivity evaluation in a certain area. 2) Using the traditional classical multivariate classification technology, through the evaluation of model results and error quantification, the optimal evaluation model is combined to quickly realize the high-quality evaluation of regional landslide sensitivity. The source code is written based on the R language software platform. The user needs to prepare a local folder separately to read and store the software operation results. The user needs to remember the folder storage path and make corresponding settings in the software source code. 3) The source code designs two different modes to display the operation results of the model. The analysis results are output in the standard format of text and graphic format and the geospatial mode that needs spatial data and is displayed in the standard geographic format. 4) it is suitable for all people interested in landslide risk assessment. The software can be used efficiently by experienced researchers in Colleges and universities, and can also be used by government personnel and public welfare organizations in the field of land and environmental planning and management to obtain landslide sensitivity classification results conveniently, quickly, correctly and reliably. It can serve regional land use planning, disaster risk assessment and management, disaster emergency response under extreme induced events (earthquake or rainfall, etc.), and has great practical guiding significance for the selection of landslide monitoring equipment and the reasonable and effective layout and operation of early warning network. It can be popularized and applied in areas with serious landslide development

The desertification risk map of the Arabian Peninsula in 2020

The gridded desertification risk data of The Arabian Peninsula in 2021 was calculated based on the environmentally sensitive area index (ESAI) methodology. The ESAI approach incorporates soil, vegetation, climate and management quality and is one of the most widely used approaches for monitoring desertification risk. Based on the ESAI framework, fourteen indicators were chosen to consider four quality domains. Each quality index was calculated from several indicator parameters. The value of each parameter was categorized into several classes, the thresholds of which were determined according to previous studies. Then, sensitivity scores between 1 (lowest sensitivity) and 2 (highest sensitivity) were assigned to each class based on the importance of the class’ role in land sensitivity to desertification and the relationships of each class to the onset of the desertification process or irreversible degradation. A more comprehensive description of how the indicators are related to desertification risk and scores is provided in the studies of Kosmas (Kosmas et al., 2013; Kosmas et al., 1999). The main indicator datasets were acquired from the Harmonized World Soil Database of the Food and Agriculture Organization, Climate Change Initiative (CCI) land cover of the European Space Agency and NOAA’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data. The raster datasets of all parameters were resampled to 500m and temporally assembled to the yearly values. Despite the difficulty of validating a composite index, two indirect validations of desertification risk were conducted according to the spatial and temporal comparison of ESAI values, including a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the ESAI and land use change between sparse vegetation and grasslands and a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the ESAI and net primary production (NPP). The verification results indicated that the desertification risk data is reliable in the Arabian Peninsula in 2021.
