DescriptionThe slope stability equation and values for material properties recommended by USGS geologist Dr. Raymond Wilson were used to map the stability regime of the four units of THP 1-97-307 HUM and the two units of THP 1-96-413 HUM. When calculations are carried out for conditions without trees, results indicate that each unit includes significant areas that would be expected to fail during storms of a size that occurs regularly in the area.
