Table 2 Scenarios of earthquake-induced landslides assessed for two target regions - results

From: A new classification of earthquake-induced landslide event sizes based on seismotectonic, topographic, climatic and geologic factors

Scenarios
Region Earthquake scenario M HD (km) I F T C L Predicted number of landslides Predicted affected area (km2)
Romania Vrancea - scenario 8.00 180.00 0.13 1.50 1.00 2.00 2.00 760 160,935
Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan South Tien Shan - scenario 7.80 15.00 1.87 6.00 3.00 1.00 2.00 67,444 29,590
  1. M is the magnitude and HD the hypocentral depth of the scenario earthquake, I is the Intensity, F is the Fault factor, T is the Topographic energy, C is the Climatic factor, L is the Lithological factor
  2. F location is the Fault (rupture) location (in Mountains =2; near = 1.5; other = 1); F type is the Fault type (Dip-slip = 1.5, Strike-slip =1); F length is the Fault length (>100 km =2, 20–100 km =1, < 20 km =0.5); F is the resulting Fault factor (as included in Table 2)
