Description:
Abstract:
Rock fall is a type of landslide that occurs in bedrock where single or multiple rocks are dislodged and fall from steep cliff faces. In a typical alpine setting, cliffs are located on the upper slopes of a mountain with a talus below, extending to the base of the mountain. The talus is composed of rocks that have fallen from the cliff face and accumulate below the cliff. The talus marks the limit of most rock fall from the cliff, but a few boulders that fall from the cliff travel beyond the toe of the talus. It is these outliers that can pose a hazard to adjacent development (see figure "b" below). Rock fall can be triggered by earthquakes, freeze-thaw cycles, or severe weather. Tumbling boulders falling from a cliff face are fast moving and can level virtually anything in their path.
Purpose:
Suitable for general reference and analyses. Identifies only rock fall potential along the river corridor within the study limits in King County.
Supplemental_Information:
The CONEFALL software program was used to implements this approach in a GIS environment to map areas where rock fall could propagate downslope from a source. As a starting point for the CONEFALL program, cliff-faces were identified to delineate the line representing the base-of-cliff/top-of-talus. Within the study limits, these lines were mapped based on professional judgement using a variety of tools in a GIS environment including vertical orthophotography, oblique photography, and slope mapping. Slopes inclined at more than 200 percent were especially identified.
