Description :
This study describes and explains the spatial distribution of mass movement in the central Nepal Himalaya. Judgments were formulated on the origin and rates of mass movement using field evidence, topographic maps, geologic maps, and SPOT imagery. Mass movement scars were mapped in the field. Chi-square analyses revealed that the frequency of slope failures varies with slope aspect, and position above/below the Main Central Thrust (MCT). Human disturbance did not account for a statistically significant increase in mass movement.
