Abstract

Topography, geology and a humid, sub-tropical climate make the Durban region on the east coast of South Africa particularly prone to sliding mass movements. Records of individual landslides and landslide events between 1970 and 1990 were compared with 22 rainfall variables calculated for the same period. Correlation coefficients demonstrated statistically significant relationships between annual and wet season landslide frequencies and maximum 3-day and maximum monthly wet season rainfall, whereas precipitation for shorter and longer periods was unrelated
