  • [1] With a view to assessing the incidence of large-scale landsliding, a morphologic database was created for volcanic islands and seamounts on young oceanic lithosphere. The database included 44 mid-ocean ridge seamounts, Jasper seamount and the islands of Ascension, Bouvet, Guadalupe, and several of the Galapagos and Azores Islands, supplemented with published reports from a further five volcanic edifices. The data reveal that major landslides are common on edifices taller than 2500 m but are… CONTINUE READING
