Landslide susceptibility mapping using a logistic regression approach : a case study in Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado
A landslide is defined as a mass-wasting process of soil, rock or debris that moves downslope (U.S. Geological Survey, 2004). Landslides can occur on any terrain if the geomorphic, geological, and hydrological conditions are right. Landslides can cause significant property damage and even fatalities. Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Springs has proved to be highly susceptible to landslides. In summer 2015, approximately 200 homes were destroyed due to natural hazards including landslides in the area (FEMA, 2015). Efforts to quantify accuracy of landslide susceptibility ...
