Matheny Creek and landslide field data

Matheny Creek is a tributary of the Queets River. The map below shows that we have been given detailed files of roads and landslides.

We are pursuing the investigation, begun on the Chehalis_River of the relationship of roadbuilding and slope failure. The slide coverage shown includes runout paths as polygons, so we have asked for a file which would differeniate locations of failure initiation. Rivers are from the USGS 1:100,000 maps.

We have assembled a 30-meter digital elevation model, and are starting to investigate algorithms for calculating valley width.
