Abstract

A detailed dendrogeomorphological landslide investigation has been carried out at the Tertiary escarpment in northwest Rheinhessen, Germany. For the first time, analysis of shrub growth curves using optical and statistical techniques has demonstrated the potential of this type of vegetation for dendrogeomorphological analysis. Indications of known dates of landslide occurence (1981/82) have been found in growth rings and showed the potential of shrubs for this type of analysis. In addition to the known event, further temporal and spatial activity of the investigated landslides has been identified
