This report is based on a cooperative study by the U.S. Geological Survey, Denver, Colorado and the Instituto Nacional de Sismologia, Vulcanologia, Meteorologia e Hidrologia, Guatemala City, Guatemala. Work funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development's Hurricane Mitch Reconstruction Program.
The cover shows the distribution of slope failures formed during Hurricane Mitch in one of twenty 1:50,000-scale maps within a large study area adjacent to the Motagua and Polochic Rivers. The maps may also show recent landslides that formed prior before and after 1998. When combined, the maps provide a detailed inventory of landslides over a large geographic area (~10,000 km2) of diverse geology, geomorphology, microclimates, and vegetation.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
Use_Constraints:These maps are inventory maps, not hazard maps, and should not be enlarged to a scale larger than 1:50,000.
