Abstract or Summary
  • Shallow landslides are a prevalent concern in mountainous regions that can result in severe societal, economic, and environmental impacts. The challenge is further compounded as the size and location of a potential slide is often unknown. This study presents a generalized approach for the evaluation of shallow landslide susceptibility using an existing shallow landslide inventory, remote sensing data, and various geotechnical scenarios. The three-dimensional limit equilibrium model uses a grid-based approach and uniquely incorporates tree root-reinforcement, earth pressure boundary forces, and pseudo-static seismic accelerations. Findings from this study include the back-calculation of soil strength from a landslide inventory, a convergence upon critical landslide size, and the determination of shallow landslide susceptibility for a landscape or infrastructure considering various root, water, and seismic conditions.
