Abstract

Landslides and runoff are dominant erosional agents in the tectonically active alpine South Westland area of New Zealand, characterized by high uplift rates and extreme orographic precipitation. Despite a high density of shallow debris slides and flows, the geomorphic imprints of deep-seated bedrock failures are dominant and persistent. Over 50 large (>1 km2) landslides comprising rock slide/avalanches, complex rotational and rock-block slides, wedge failures, and deep-seated gravitational slope deformation were detected on air photos and shaded-relief images. Large landslides appear to have dual roles of supplying and retaining sediment
