Global Landslide Susceptibility

The map is part of a broader effort to establish a hazards monitoring system that combines satellite observations of rainfall from the Global Precipitation Measurement mission with an assessment of the underlying susceptibility of terrain.

Steep slopes are the most important factor that makes a landscape susceptible to landslides. Other key factors include deforestation, the presence of roads, the strength of bedrock & soils, and the location of faults.
