An issue like landslides in inhabited areas appears today as an important and obvious environmental problem, often called hazard, which, in nowadays’ concept of social, economical and ethical development, requests a careful and complex approach of which results must end up at a fast and efficient solving of the problem, respecting meanwhile the sustainable development principles. This study proposes an approach of the applicability of resistivity surveys in the attempt to efficiently predict landslides and the geometry of the future sliding body, before the active stage of the landslide. The investigated area is located in Romania – the municipality of Runcu, and it’s represented by a road with important stability problems. Such studies, executed after the first signs of instability have been noticed, can efficiently help predicting landslides appearance and can provide important information for their remediation, such as the size and shape of the affected body and the most vulnerable areas for losing cohesion.
