Title: Landslide susceptibility and risk along the Mugling-Narayanghat highway, Nepal

Shortened Abstract: Landslides represent a major hazard in the Hill Districts of Nepal, where the intersection of high population density, extreme relief and heavy monsoon rainfall results in numerous landslide fatalities each year. Despite this, very few attempts have been made to deduce the principal conditioning factors which determine the propensity of slope failure. Through compilation of an inventory of landslides within a 325 km2 study area, encompassing the Mugling-Narayanghat highway, susceptibility and risk are quantified.
