Landslide Hazard Study of Mercer Island, Washington
Landslides are ubiquitous in the Puget Lowland of northwest Washington State for several reasons. These factors include many ìcoarse-over-fineî geologic contacts, steep bluffs and ridges, and a wet climate for much of the year. The rapid expansion of the Seattle area population into areas that are susceptible to landslides ...
Landslide Susceptibility Assessment: Deep and shallow-seated landslide susceptibility model, Chambers Creek, Pierce County, WA
In wet, glacially overridden regions, landsliding is a common and dangerous natural phenomenon. Thus, attempting to predict these mass wasting events is a vital and useful task. Many landslide models already exist, but the ultimate goal of this Capstone Project was to create a deep and shallow landslide susceptibility model ...
