The importance of earthquake-induced landslides to long-term slope erosion and slope-failure hazards in seimically active regions

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes a general method for determining the amount of earthquake-induced landsliding that occurs in a seismically active region over time; this determination can be used as a quantitative measure of the long-term hazard from seimically triggered landslides as well as measure of the importance of this process to regional slope-erosion rates and landscape evolution. Comparisons with other slope processes indicate that earthquake-induced landslides are the predominant agents of slope erosion on the island of Hawaii, in the San Francisco Bay region, And in western New Guinea
