Abstract

The AA. examine 3 well-documented landslide events, from Italy, Guatemala and the USA, each with a different triggering mechanism, and find that the landslide areas for all 3 are well approximated by the same three-parameter inverse-gamma distribution. The AA. also introduce a landslide-event magnitude scale. This technique can be applied to inventories of historical landslides. The AA. suggest that their proposed frequency-size distributions for landslides (excluding rockfalls) will be useful in quantifying the severity of landslide events and the contribution of landslides to erosion
