Short summary
The 2012 Emilia seismic sequence (Italy) caused significant liquefaction-related damage. We used a lidar DTM and the 2012 liquefaction data to (a) perform a geomorphological study of the Po River plain and (b) define the liquefaction susceptibility of the geomorphologic features. Results indicate that fluvial landforms acted as a preferential location for the occurrence of liquefaction. We quantitatively defined a hierarchy in terms of liquefaction susceptibility for an ideal fluvial environment
