The Ledgewood-Bonair Landslide toe and where did it go? A case study in littoral sediment budgets from a deep-seated landslide in Island County, Washington
On the morning of March 27th, 2013, a small portion of a much larger landslide complex failed on the western shoreline of central Whidbey Island, Island County, Washington. This landslide, known as the Ledgewood-Bonair Landslide (LB Landslide), mobilized as much as 150,000 cubic meters of unconsolidated glacial sediment onto ...
Using Terrestrial LiDAR to Monitor Erosion within the Gold Basin Landslide Complex, Verlot, WA
In 2014 the United States Forest Service closed the Gold Basin Campground of western Washington in an effort to protect the public from unstable hillslopes directly adjacent to the campground. The Gold Basin Landslide Complex (GBLC) is actively eroding via block fall, dry ravel, and debris flows, which contribute sediment ...
Geology and landslide geomorphology of the Burpee Hills, Skagit County, Washington, USA
Landforms within the Skagit Valley record a complex history of land evolution from Late Pleistocene to the present. Late Pleistocene glacial deposits and subsequent incision by the Skagit River formed the Burpee Hills terrace. The Burpee Hills comprises an approximately 205-m-thick sequence of sediments, including glacio-lacustrine ...
A comparison of landslide inventories along the shoreline of Steamboat Island Peninsula, Thurston County, WA: office based protocol vs. field based protocol
The mountain ranges and coastlines of Washington State have steep slopes, and they are susceptible to landslides triggered by intense rainstorms, rapid snow melts, earthquakes, and rivers and waves removing slope stability. Over a 30-year timespan (1984-2014 and includes State Route (SR) 530), a total of 28 deep-seated ...
Landslide Hazard Map of Kirkland, WA
Landslides are one of the most significant geohazards in the Puget Sound region and have a history of causing extensive damage to development (Baum, Harp, and Highland, 2007). Mapping landslide hazard areas is imperative in reducing the risk landslides pose to people and property. Given the general importance of landslide ...
