Landslides triggered by Hurricane Mitch in Nicaragua [New Window]
We present an inventory of landslides and related downchannel effects triggered by the passage of Hurricane Mitch, October 21-31, 1998 in seven study areas in Nicaragua. The inventory was compiled from aerial photographs and field mapping. Most (perhaps
Landslides triggered by Hurricane Mitch in El Salvador [New Window]
This cover contains the outlines of landslides and debris flows caused by heavy rainfall associated with Hurricane Mitch in October-November 1998. The landslides and debris flows shown in this coverage were mapped using 1:40,00-scale and 1:15,000-scale b
Older landslides (before Hurricane Mitch) in El Salvador [New Window]
This cover contains the outlines of selected landslides and debris flows that occurred prior to Hurricane Mitch in the areas where hurricane-induced landslides were mapped. The landslides and debris flows shown in this coverage were mapped using 1:40,00-
Landslide initiation locations in Nicaragua [New Window]
We present an inventory of the initiation locations of landslides triggered by the passage of Hurricane Mitch, October 21-31, 1998 in seven study areas in Nicaragua. The inventory was compiled from aerial photographs and field mapping. Most (perhaps 95%
Landslide initiation locations in Caquipec quadrangle, Guatemala [New Window]
This cover contains initiation location of landslides formed during Hurricane Mitch in October - November 1998. Locations were identified by manually selecting the upslope location of the landslides in the cover ls21622.
Landslides in Caquipec quadrangle, Guatemala [New Window]
This cover contains the outlines of landslides formed during Hurricane Mitch in October - November 1998. Jeffrey Coe and Robert Bucknam mapped the landslides and related effects in and adjacent to downstream drainages. Most landslides were mapped using
Landslide initiation locations in Castillo San Felipe quadrangle, Guatemala [New Window]
This cover contains initiation location of landslides formed during Hurricane Mitch in October - November 1998. Locations were identified by manually selecting the upslope location of the landslides in the cover ls23622.

Older landslides in Castillo San Felipe quadrangle, Guatemala [New Window]
This cover contains the outlines of recent landslides formed prior to Hurricane Mitch in October - November 1998. Jeffrey Coe and Robert Bucknam mapped the landslides. Most landslides were mapped using 1:40,000-scale aerial photographs and a Kern PG-2 p
Landslide initiation locations in Cerro Caral quadrangle, Guatemala [New Window]
This cover contains initiation location of landslides formed during Hurricane Mitch in October - November 1998. Locations were identified by manually selecting the upslope location of the landslides in the cover ls23622.
