Abstract

A large number of landslides occured during two seismic events on 5 March 1987 in the Ecuadorian Andes. These landslides have been mapped, digitized, and coregistered with topography at 1:50,000 scale. Geometry of coseismic and Holocene faulting has been assessed integrating field and geophysical data. Landslide distribution and Holocene tectonic features have been compared with earthquake foci, geological deposits, slope area, inclination and orientation, and vegetation cover
