ABSTRACT. – Identifying Landslide Hazard in the Chechiș Catchment, Baia Mare Depression. One of the starting points when assessing landslide risk is hazard identification, represented by the description of the landslide process and the extent to which it has an impact on the human community. Different areas affected by sliding processes have been identified and mapped on the field in the 100 km2 of the Chechiș catchment, a territory situated to the south of Baia Mare municipality. Several other areas are considered to be susceptible to sliding processes, based on the factors which have influenced the occurrence of the ones already identified. Past and present effects of the existing landslides are illustrated and discussed together with the costs associated to the measures needed for their mitigation. In the view of these results, a landslide risk assessment is considered necessary in the area.
