Global Landslide Hazard Distribution
Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_LSLIDE_HD_1.0


Summary
Abstract: Global Landslide Hazard Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid of global landslide and snow avalanche hazards based upon work of the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). The hazards mapping of NGI incorporates a range of data including slope, soil, soil moisture conditions, precipitation, seismicity, and temperature. Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) elevation data at 30 second resolution are ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a means of assessing the relative distribution and frequency of global landslide hazard.

MODELS
Quality Global Landslide Hazard Distribution is based upon a global landslide and snow avalanche dataset developed by Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). NGI's model included SRTM30-based elevation, slope, soil, soil moisture, precipitation, seismicity, and temperature. Areas were ranked from 1 to 9 (9 being highest) with regards to the propensity for a landslide or avalanche. Since an NGI index 4 and ... View entire text
