Abstract

This paper describes the use of geomorphological mapping in the assessment of the natural hazards along a highway in eastern Taiwan, Taroko Gorge. Detailed records of the size and occurrence of rockfalls and landslides affecting the highway have been obtained and analyzed and, by combining these data with the geomorphological and geological data, a hazard assessment map has been produced for the highway. This map may be used to improve the development of the highway, decreasing the danger for users and the amount of time that the highway is closed
