Short summary
This manuscript defines a reliable methodology for shallow landslides triggering zones assessment at site-specific or local scales by using a well-established physically based model (TRIGRS-unsaturated) based on the calibration of the model at slope scale using soil hydrological behavior analyzed through a continuous field monitoring. Moreover, the paper analyzes the effects on triggering zones assessment of taking into account for different unit mapping of the slope soils of a studied area.
