Vulnérabilité physique des milieux urbanisés face à la menace des inondations (lahars et crues éclair) : application au cas d'étude d'Arequipa au Pérou by Kim Martelli( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Volcanic mass flows (lahars, hyperconcentrated flows) and flash floods represent destructive and dangerous phenomena. Given evidence concerning the destructive nature of lahars (e.g. Armero, Colombia, 1985) there appears to be a lack of studies into the effect of lahars in dense urban environments ; a very real threat for many cities worldwide including the Arequipa, Peru. Arequipa, with nearly 1 million inhabitants, is located 17 km SW of El Misti Volcano. El Misti's last major eruption occurred 550 years ago (1460AD), with smaller eruptions occurring in the 18 and 19th Centuries. Lahars with volumes ranging from 0.01x106 m3 to 11x106 m3 have occurred, and flash floods have swept down valleys every 5 to 10 years. Population growth has resulted in urban sprawl to within 9 km of El Misti's summit. It is this rapid and seemingly uncontrolled expansion which warrants the assessment of building, land use and infrastructure within a vulnerability framework. Hazard scenarios were developed from former and current geological studies ; conventional and computer-aided (e.g. Titan2D numerical modelling) mapping of volcaniclastic and fluvial deposits ; field surveys of land use, buildings and infrastructure ; statistical analysis (including multivariate analysis) ; and geotechnical characteristics of building materials. Three reference scenarios were used from a flash flood scenario (recurrence interval of 5 to 10 years) to a (sub)Plinian eruption (VEI >3, recurrence interval of 5000 to 20,000 years). Inundation zones were defined using simulation code results coupled with geological mapping and magnitude/frequency analysis. The results of Titan2D modelling feature a longer flow runout than in previous studies (e.g. Vargas et al., 2010) due to the creation of an enhanced 10 m DEM, constructed from DGPS surveys and ASTER data. Land-use, building and infrastructure surveys identified nineteen different land-use patterns, ten main building types and many key infrastructures. Building types were classified and ranked according to a number of components, such as the dominant building material, number of floors etc. Similarly land use and infrastructure were ranked according to a number of different elements such as occupancy rate, emergency importance etc. The mechanical effects of the flows on buildings and infrastructure were then investigated to elaborate vulnerability functions. The vulnerability and risk assessment have indicated that building, land use and infrastructure on the Quebrada Huarangal fan are particularly vulnerable and at risk even during the smallest magnitude flow. This is primarily due to very poor quality construction in high hazard areas on the Quebrada Huarangal fan. In contrast the risk posed in the Río Chili Valley is in general much less. The level of risk posed to the hydroelectric power scheme and the potable water supply is concern for the city, especially during a volcanic crisis. Data integration abilities of GIS in generating risk information by combining hazard scenarios with vulnerability elements have been highlighted in this research and offer promising prospects in the field of volcanic risk assessment and management. In addition, an updated database could help to efficiently handle possible volcanic crisis in real-time, and more importantly assist the risk reduction tasks
