Abstract

An inventory of 846 mass movements, mainly landslides, in 2 alpine regions of southwest New Zealand was created to explore the geomorphic impacts of slope-failure processes on river channels and valley floors. A nominal classification system is introduced for characterizing : the physical contact nature between landslides and river channels; and the resulting geomorphic consequences for drainage. Dominant persistent geomorphic imprints of bedrock landslides include channel occlusions and landslide dams in South Westland and Fiorland, respectively
