Damocles was aimed at developing and appling advanced modelling technologies to assess hazards posed by rapid slope failures in mountain areas and to disseminate these technologies to local end-users for applications in land use planning. In order to accompish these goals, the prject integrated reaserch-based model development with the direct involvement of local planning and civil protection authorities as data suppliers, advisors, and recipient of the project results. The project coordinator was Prof. James C. Bathurst, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Departmet of Civil Engineering, UK. Our twam ws involved primarely in: (i) the development of STONE, a 3-D rock fall simulation programme and (ii) the publications of the project results using Web-based GIS applications.
