Abstract

This paper discusses the factors initiating landslides and a large-scale debris flow in the Chonho area of Taipei County, which resulted from heavy rainfall during Typhoon Xangsane in November 2000. The morphology and triggering mechanism of the landslides and the debris flow were investigated using aerial photographs taken over the past 20 years, field measurement of channel cross-sections, laboratory assessment of slope material properties, and slope stability analysis. The results indicate that the landslides and the debris flow were strongly influenced by the physical properties of the underlying pyroclastic substrate and the pattern of bedrock discontinuities within the valleys
