A study of rainfall thresholds for landslides in Badung Regency using satellite-derived rainfall grid datasets

Integrating field rainfall data with satellite data improves data accuracy and overcomes rainfall data limitations for rain thresholds. Integration can involve field rainfall data, satellite rainfall data, or a different satellite dataset. Merging these rainfall data sources provides more spatial coverage of satellite data. To determine how well rainfall thresholds predict rainfall-triggered landslides, the threshold model must be validated. This study will evaluate satellite rainfall data before and after integration in developing a rainfall threshold model for landslide prediction in Badung Regency. To do so, the study used a cumulative rainfall threshold over 3, 7, 15, and 30 days and two rainfall satellite products (integrated merged multi-satellite retrievals (IMERG) and precipitation estimation from remotely sensed information using artificial neural networks (PERSIANN)). Median, first, and third quartiles were used to set thresholds. The area under the curve (AUC) was calculated to validate rainfall threshold outcomes using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. Analysis showed that integrating satellite rainfall data into the rainfall threshold model for landslide prediction yields better results than other methods. An AUC value of 0.903 (90.3%) for the 30-day cumulative rainfall thresholds supports this claim. This model could be a good input for a landslide early warning system in Badung Regency.
