The study contains descriptions of landslides and debris flows in a small upland catchment in Taiwan between 1986 and 2004. This catchment, the Chushui Creek, is situated near the epicentre of the 1999 M7.6 Chi-Chi earthquake. The data presented in this study illustrates the geomorphic change associated with the earthquake. In addition, this study contains precise geographic and statistical descriptions of the landslides triggered by 3 typhoons and an eartquake that affected the catchment since 1996. The AA. propose that a link exists between landslide frequency-area distributions and initialization of debris flow in the catchment
