The Gajevo landslide in the Kravarsko area (Vukomeričke Gorice hilly area, northern Croatia) was chosen for investigation due to the existing landslide risk for the households at the landslide crown. Available data are limited, but a new landslide map and cross-section was developed within the presented research, mostly based on detailed light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data and field mapping. By comparing available orthophotos of the landslide, resident testimonies, precipitation data, and media releases, it was concluded that the landslide was activated in February 2014. The landslide was primarily triggered by increased precipitation (its measured variations could be in direct connection with ongoing global climate changes), but natural terrain features and anthropogenic factors also affected slope stability. New findings have led to the conclusion that the existing landslide area is large and complex and the crown and head scarp area should be stabilized by urgent remediation measures. View Full-Text
