Predicting landslide stability, runout, and failure velocity at Cook Lake landslide, Wyoming
Proper understanding of risk is predicated on accurate characterization of hazard. Landslide hazards are common, but are difficult to characterize without a full site investigation, which are often unavailable. This thesis develops a framework for obtaining inexpensive field and laboratory data to characterize three major components of landslide hazard: current stability, runout distance (L), and failure velocity. The framework is designed to analyze deep-seated, soil landslides, and is evaluated using data from the Cook Lake, Wyoming landslide. The framework consists of four tools. Two of these ...
