Abstract

Landsliding in eastern Scotland results from high-magnitude rainstorms generated under either cyclonic or anticyclonic conditions, particularly during the summer. Data from Aviemore indicated that cyclonic storms produce higher rainfall totals than anticyclonic storms. The distribution of rain during individual storms also varies with the synoptic conditions under which the storms are produced. In this paper, a physically based coupled hydrology-stability model is used to assess the significance of these rainfall characteristics to soil moisture response and slope instability for mature podsols
