Reconstructing high-magnitude/low-frequency landslide events based on soil redistribution modelling and a Late-Holocene sediment record from New Zealand

Abstract

For interpreting the sediment pulses in a dune-impounded wetland at Te Henga, west Auckland, a physically based landslide model was used to determine spatially distributed relative landslide hazard, applicable at the catchment scale. Sediment volumes were calculated from the wetland cores and corresponding landslide scenarios are defined through back-analysis of modelled sediment yield output. At least 4 major high-magnitude landslide events, both natural and intensified by forest clearance activities, occurred in the catchment upstream of Te Henga wetland during the last c. 1000 years
