Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Civil engineering
  • Landslide

His primary areas of study are Landslide, Geotechnical engineering, Cartography, Scale and Risk zoning. Jordi Corominas works in the field of Landslide, focusing on Rockfall in particular. His Rockfall research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Verification and validation and Risk analysis.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Extensometer and Power law in addition to Geotechnical engineering. His work carried out in the field of Cartography brings together such families of science as Discriminant function analysis, Linear discriminant analysis and Mass movement. His research integrates issues of Landslide susceptibility and Environmental planning in his study of Risk zoning.

His most cited work include:

  • Guidelines for landslide susceptibility, hazard and risk zoning for land-use planning (838 citations)
  • Recommendations for the quantitative analysis of landslide risk (449 citations)
  • The angle of reach as a mobility index for small and large landslides (402 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Landslide, Rockfall, Geomorphology, Geotechnical engineering and Forensic engineering. Jordi Corominas has researched Landslide in several fields, including Risk analysis, Cartography and Remote sensing. The concepts of his Cartography study are interwoven with issues in Discriminant function analysis and Linear discriminant analysis.

His study in Rockfall is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Discontinuity and Rock mass classification. His work in the fields of Geotechnical engineering, such as Slope stability analysis, intersects with other areas such as Technical university. His research in Forensic engineering focuses on subjects like Debris flow, which are connected to Hydrology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Landslide (51.75%)
  • Rockfall (46.49%)
  • Geomorphology (21.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Rockfall (46.49%)
  • Landslide (51.75%)
  • Geomorphology (21.93%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Rockfall, Landslide, Geomorphology, Rock mass classification and Fragmentation. His Rockfall study is concerned with the field of Geotechnical engineering as a whole. In his articles, Jordi Corominas combines various disciplines, including Geotechnical engineering and 3d analysis.

His Landslide research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pixel, Remote sensing and Mode. Many of his research projects under Geomorphology are closely connected to Electrical resistivity tomography, Fold, Cliff erosion and Chlorine-36 with Electrical resistivity tomography, Fold, Cliff erosion and Chlorine-36, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research integrates issues of Joint, Geometry, Discontinuity and Power law in his study of Rock mass classification.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A fractal fragmentation model for rockfalls (36 citations)
  • Quantitative analysis of risk from fragmental rockfalls (16 citations)
  • Rockfall occurrence and fragmentation (15 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Civil engineering
  • Artificial intelligence

Jordi Corominas mostly deals with Rockfall, Landslide, Rock mass classification, Rock fragment and Power law. His Rockfall research is within the category of Geotechnical engineering. His Landslide study is associated with Geomorphology.

His work deals with themes such as Joint, Seismology and Magnitude, which intersect with Rock mass classification. His Joint study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Persistence and Fracture. Rock fragment is integrated with Natural hazard, Piedra, Flow, Fragmentation and Continuous flow in his research.
