Description: mountainous areas of the western United States, Canada, and Alaska is severely restricted by unstable terrain that is susceptible to soil movement varying from surface creep to catastrophic landslides. Management practices that might trigger or increase such disturbance are increasingly subject to public scrutiny.
Land management-planning as required by the Resources Planning Act (RPA) (PL93-378 1, the National Forest Management Act (NFMA) (PL94-588), the Resource Conservation Act (RCA) (PL95-192) and other Federal and State laws requires that soil stability receive strong consideration in long-range-plans. Accordingly, planners have a critical need for the best possible information on soil stability and risk of landslides, and potential impacts on other resources.
