His primary areas of investigation include Landslide, Cartography, Geographic information system, Scale and Natural hazard. His Landslide study is related to the wider topic of Geomorphology. His Cartography research integrates issues from Slope stability, Common spatial pattern, Landslide susceptibility, Spatial variability and Remote sensing.
His Remote sensing research incorporates elements of Hazard mapping and Instability. His Geographic information system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hazard map, Hazard analysis and Terrain. The Scale study combines topics in areas such as Civil engineering, Land use, Environmental resource management, Probabilistic modelling and Hydrogeology.
C.J. van Westen focuses on Landslide, Cartography, Hydrology, Remote sensing and Debris flow. C.J. van Westen has researched Landslide in several fields, including Debris, Hazard analysis and Geographic information system. His Cartography study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Natural hazard.
C.J. van Westen has included themes like Vulnerability assessment and Environmental resource management in his Natural hazard study. C.J. van Westen studies Remote sensing, a branch of Remote sensing. His work on Debris flow is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Run-out.
C.J. van Westen mainly investigates Landslide, Hydrology, Natural hazard, Debris and Risk analysis. His studies deal with areas such as Cartography, Hazard analysis and Geodesy as well as Landslide. His work in Cartography addresses issues such as Land use, which are connected to fields such as Collaborative mapping.
His Natural hazard study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Natural, Agriculture and Scale. His work on Debris flow as part of general Debris study is frequently linked to Volume measurement, bridging the gap between disciplines. His study looks at the relationship between Risk analysis and topics such as Decision support system, which overlap with Geospatial analysis, Risk analysis and Spatial planning.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Landslide, Natural hazard, Cartography, Hazard analysis and Debris. His Landslide research includes themes of Monsoon and Flood myth. His study in Natural hazard is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Aerial photography, Decision support system, Geospatial analysis and Process.
C.J. van Westen interconnects Change detection and Natural disaster in the investigation of issues within Cartography. His Hazard analysis research includes elements of Event, Seismic hazard and Bayesian probability. His work on Debris flow as part of his general Debris study is frequently connected to Scaling law, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
