A systematic exploration of satellite radar coherence methods for rapid landslide detection

Katy Burrows, Richard J. Walters, David Milledge, and Alexander L. Densmore

Data sets

Characteristics of landslides triggered by the 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi earthquake, Northern Japan S. Zhang, R. Li, F. Wang, and A. Iio

Map data of landslides triggered by the 25 April 2015 Mw 7.8 Gorkha, Nepal earthquake K. Roback, M. K., Clark, A. J. West, D. Zekkos, G. Li, S. F. Gallen, D. Champlain, and J. W. Godt

Short summary
Satellite radar could provide information on landslide locations within days of an earthquake or rainfall event anywhere on Earth, but until now there has been a lack of systematic testing of possible radar methods, and most methods have been demonstrated using a single case study event and data from a single satellite sensor. Here we test five methods on four events, demonstrating their wide applicability and making recommendations on when different methods should be applied in the future.
