Landslide incidence zonation in the Rio Mendoza valley, Mendoza Province, Argentina

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents a landslide incidence zonation map showing the percentage of underlying material involved in mass-movement processes in the Rio Mendoza valley. A correlation has been found between the occurence of landslides, earthquakes, and rainfall. The relation between lithology and landslides is clear : areas covered by friable sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Choiyoi Group are prone to debris flows and complex landslides. A general relation between slope and type of event is shown. Falls commonly develop in high-angle slopes
