Abstract or Summary
  • Much of the rich forestlands of Oregon are subject to frequent mass wasting events, resulting in severe environmental and economic damages. Extensive research has shown that this landslide hazard is often exacerbated by many management activities. Following a severe storm event which triggered thousands of landslides, the Oregon Department of Forestry implemented a project designed to study these slides. By analyzing the study site stability conditions, landscape setting characteristics at failure initiation point, and landslide parameters for three of the ODF study sites, the erosional characteristics of these areas can be better understood. For each of these western Oregon sites this paper identifies hazard areas, landslide behaviors, impact types, and the implications of these findings for forest management and high-risk site assessment. KEY WORDS: Storm-Induced Mass Wasting, Landslides, Slope Stability Factors, Erosonal Hazards, High-Risk Site Assessment, Forest Management
