Summary:A forest land management analysis scheme is discussed for dealing with landslides that occur in residual and colluvial soils. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service in cooperation with the University of Idaho is developing a scheme for evaluating soil-mantle landslide potential to provide information at three levels of land management activities: (a) resource planning; i.e., relative landslide hazard evaluation for resource allocation; (b) project planning; i.e., evaluation of management impacts for comparing alternate transportation routes and timber harvest techniques; and (c) road design and landslide stabilization; i.e., evaluation of alternate road stabilization techniques at a specific critical site.—Modified journal abstract.
