Abstract

Debris avalanches and other mass wasting deposits are common geomorphic features in the White Mountains. This study, based on air photo interpretation of 173 randomly selected slide scars, and supported by field observations and statistical analysis, examines the relative importance of lithology and geologic structure on slide occurrence, as well as the relationship between topography and slide morphology. Results indicate that the frequency of slide scars is significantly higher in sections underlain by metasedimentary lithologies than in areas dominated by plutonic rocks
