Description :
This paper presents new equations expressing variations in erosional susceptibility, Es, using a data base for over 200 landslides in the loess-covered mountainous terrain (relative relief up to 1500 m) of the Lanzhou region. These equations express the loss of potential energy of the landslide mass in relation to the relative relief and the pressure energy input in the form of rainfall. These indices of Es can be used to analyse the differences in response, from one catchment to another and through time, between the characteristics of vegetation cover including land use, hydrology, geomechanical behaviour and mass movement.
