Landslide initiation locations in Nicaragua

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

We present an inventory of the initiation locations of landslides triggered by the passage of Hurricane Mitch, October 21-31, 1998 in seven study areas in Nicaragua. The inventory was compiled from aerial photographs and field mapping. Most (perhaps 95%) of the landslides at the mapped initiation locations produced debris flows. The remaining 5% of mapped initiation locations were slow-moving earth flows that started moving during Hurricane Mitch and continued to move for at least one year.
