A point pattern analysis of the landslide data was helpful in understanding the intensity of the landsliding spatially as well as relating the interaction of the geoenvironmental variables in each landslide location with the processes generating the landslide distribution patterns.
The factors that control landsliding in a particular region largely depend upon the geoenvironmental setup of the area.
Concave slopes allow water and weathered material to accumulate and this leads to suitable conditions for landsliding. The majority of active (58.4 %) and temporarily inactive (68.3 %) landslides are situated more than 100 m from a stream whereas 72.9 % of complex landslides are situated less than 100 m from a stream.
Although a general correspondence exists between clear-cut logging and landsliding, the devil remains in the details.
