ABSTRACT. Present- day landslide risk assessment in Măhăceni Tableland. Actual landform processes rely on approaches to intensify research into quantitative and experimental geomorphology. Among contemporary modeling landform processes, landslides take an important place in Măhăceni Tableland. Landslide predictability in the actual context of slope dynamics, follows two main aspects: the geomorphologic behaviour (landslide trigger action and evolution) and the social behaviour (human perception on their impact). Landslide risk assessment, follows concepts like: susceptibility, vulnerability, hazard, risk, disaster. In Romania, at present, there is a lack of predicting, preventing, reconstruction and planning actions regarding landslides. Short and middle- time landslide predictability tries to fill up this gap with actions like: identifying areas with high susceptibility to landslides, finding areas with high vulnerability to elements at risk, the construction of landslide risk maps, getting the population to be more conscious of landslide risk. On the other hand, this study tries to get institutionalized actions like: analyzing, predicting, risk management, throughout territorial monitoring.
Key words: predictability, risk assessment, landslides, GIS, Măhăceni Tableland
