Abstract

This paper presents different approaches to describe the geological and morphological features of the Jiufengershan landslide : interpretation of aerial photos taken before and after the Chi-Chi earthquake; study of the topography by means of a high-resolution digital elevation model (DEM) from airborne laser altimetry data; field observations at different scales alonf the sliding surface and the landslide deposit. The influence of large landslides on the erosion of the Taiwan western fold-and -thrust belt is discussed in the light of volume estimations of large landslide accumulations generated during the Chi-Chi earthquake
