Falls Creek Landslide, Whatcom County

May 7, 2009

As part of a project to create a landslide susceptibility map and landslide precipitation forecasting model for Whatcom County, I have been trying to map out all of the deep-seated landslides within the areas with LiDAR. I ran across this landslide last night.

It is a little difficult to see, but the orthophoto shows what looks to be an raveling scarp, which might suggest recent movement. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything published on this landslide.
