SCAMP Slope-Stability Studies

SCAMP conducts a variety of regional slope-stability studies, including responding to the debris-flow incident in the village of Forest Home in the San Bernardino Mountains in 2001 and various investigations related to El-Nino triggered mudflows and mudslides. The latter investigations have led to the following reports:

Hauser, R.M. and Morton, D.M., 1998, Analysis of 1997-98 El Nino generated soil slip-debris flows in the Santa Clara River area, Ventura County and the San Timoteo Badlands area, Riverside County, southern California: Association of Engineering Geologists Annual Meeting Program with Abstracts, p. 96.
