M cover roughly 25% of Earth’s terrestrial surface, yet they harbor a disproportionately large number of unique species and human cultures (Price and Butts 2000). Mountains also play an important, albeit poorly understood, role in hydroclimatic and biogeochemical cycles that directly or indirectly sustain the livelihood of many people around the world (Schröter et al. 2005). Among the processes that continuously modify mountainscapes, land sliding stands out because of its severe and long… CONTINUE READING
