A landslide is a landslide is a landslide or is it? Defining landslide potential across large landscapes



A landslide is a landslide is a landslide or is it? Defining landslide potential across large landscapes



Science Findings Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest Service (101): 6 pp



Not all landslides are created equal. Some have the potential to run out to streams and others do not. Some are likely to simplify and damage stream habitat, and others can be important sources of gravel and large wood, fundamental components of habitat complexity for salmon and other stream inhabitants. Forest managers want to avoid negative consequences and promote positive characteristics of debris flows.
