NG K.Y. ;


This research examined landslide locations with reference to theories of fluvial drainage development. In Hong Kong, eight small drainage basins were studied in which 451 landslides were recorded. Results have shown that landslide locations are related to a headward progression of the drainage network integration, starting from the mainstream (the fifth order) up to the first order tributaries, indicated by the systematic variation between morphometric parameters and landslide density
