Speech Title：Evaluating The Effects Of Climate Changes On Landslide Hazard Map Using Support Vector Machine (SVM)
Abstract：Landslide is a natural disaster, and 4862 landslide events reportedly occur globally between the period 2004 to 2016, which cause 55,997 fatalities. Landslide hazard is defined as landslide damaging potential to occur at a specific area, consisting of fatalities or injury, destruction of property, disruption to economic and social, or degradation to the environment. Climate change, directly and indirectly, affects the stability of single slopes, and the landslide susceptibility area may also change. It is found that there are a limited number of studies that assess the effects of climate variability on landslides, including retrospective methods and prospective modelling that use climate records and landslides. This study, therefore, tends to propose new modelling of the problem by considering climatic change influences on landslide hazard map (LHMs) in Penang Island, using Support Vector Machine (SVM). Penang Island is selected as a study area due to the frequent number of landslides reported. Furthermore, its topography contains almost 50% of the highland area, increasing the risk of landslide events. Two climate factors are selected in this study (mean annual temperature and rainfall) with 12 causative factors, which are stream power index (SPI), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), lithology, elevation, slope aspect, slope degree, plan curvature, land use, topographic wetness index (TWI), distance to faults, distance to river and distance to the road were used in SVM model. The climate changes of the study area are stimulated using Statistical Downscaling Model (SDSM) under RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 scenarios. ArcGIS 10.7.1 is used to integrate and process the data to produce the causative map of each selected factor, and R Studio is used to develop an SVM model to produce LHMs. The result showed that the mean annual rainfall and temperature is expected to increase in the future (2070-2099) under both RCP conditions. The LHMs are compared and shown by areas (km2) for present and future conditions under climate change scenarios RCP4.5 and RCP 8.5. The result from LHMs showed an increment of area class as moderate, high, and very high hazardous under the effect of climate change within the range of 0.3% to 1.1%. The LHMs produced are validated using the Area under the curve (AUC) and yield a value between 77.25% to 79.09%, indicating the acceptable performance of the model development.
