The Origin of Landslides &
Their Impacts on Landscape Evolution
Cascading landslide hazards caused by exterme weather events (AghaKouchak et al., 2020)
Coseismic landslides and post-seismic landslide reactivation (Tanyaş et al., 2021)
Topography after the Hsiao-Lin landslide & the thickness of sediment fills. The Hsiao-Lin village was located at the toe of this slide, near the red text "20" aside modern river (Hsieh et al., 2012).
Residual landslide blocks, made of stratified ancient landslide deposits. You can see >80 m thick ancient landslide deposits exposed on the landslide wall (Hsieh et al., 2012).
Ancient landslide deposit strata, showing multiple historical mud slide events (M1, M2) in this region. Remobilization of these old landslide deposits lead to the 2009 Hsiao-Lin slide (Hsieh et al., 2012)
Vivianite coating on the wood fragment buried in the M2 mud slide deposit (ca. 12k years BP), indicating a quick burial event in water-rich, reduced environment. (Hsieh et al., 2012)
Simulated results of the 2014 Oso landslide, WA on its time-sensitive topographic smoothing by natural surface diffusion process (a-e) and a comparison of a simialr but older landslide nearby (f, predicted age ~5 ka) (Booth et al., 2017).
C14-age calibrated surface-roughness age model for the deep-seated landslide deposits occured in the region of Tyee Formation in southwestern Oregon. (LaHusen et al., 2020).
Recent progress updates on the landslide mapping and dating works in southwestern Washington (Details in Lai et al., 2023, AGU Fall Meeting).
