Mapping and analysis of the Rio Chama landslide and evaluation of regional landslide susceptibility, Archuleta County, Colorado
MetadataShow full item record
Recent landslides, such as the West Salt Creek landslide in Colorado and the Oso landslide in Washington, have brought to light the need for more extensive landslide evaluations in order to prevent disasters in the U.S.. The goal of this research is to characterize and map the Rio Chama landslide, evaluate conditions at failure, predict future behavior, and apply these findings to create a regional susceptibility model for similar failures. Based on the classification scheme proposed by Cruden and Varnes (1996), the Rio Chama landslide is an active multiple rotational debris slide and flow ...
