Abstract

On the west coast of Vancouver Island, in the Brooks Peninsula, 201 debris slides and debris flows were identified and characterized on aerial photographs, and then mapped and transferred to a GIS for analysis. Based on detailed landslide surveys, the AA. propose a new method to accurately determine volume of landslides of this type by measured total area. With the magnitude-frequency relationships of the data set they present a strong argument that the rollover effect is not merely an artefact, but is instead a consequence of the physical characteristics of the landslides themselves
