Application of knowledge-driven method for debris-slide susceptibility mapping in regional scale
Debris-slides are a frequent hazard in fragile decomposed metasedimentary rocks in the Anakeesta rock formation in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The spatial distribution of an existing debris-slide area could be used to prepare susceptibility map for future debris-slide initiation zones. This work aims to create a debris-slide susceptibility map by using a knowledge-driven method in a GIS platform in Anakeesta formation of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Six geofactors, namely, elevation, annual rainfall, slope curvature, landcover, soil texture and various slope failure modes were ...
