GIS Bases Frequency Ratio Method for Identification of Potential Landslide Susceptible Area in the Siwalik Zone of Chatara, Barahakshetra Section, Nepal


The paper delves into the GIS-based frequency ratio method for the identification of potential landslide-susceptible areas in the Siwalik zone of the Chatara-Barahakshetra section, Nepal. This study aimed to create a landslide susceptibility map for the Chatara-Barahakshetra area in eastern Nepal's Siwalik zone using a frequency ratio model, utilizing remote sensing and GIS. The validation results demonstrated the model's prediction ability, with over 71% success rate, making it a suitable tool for prioritizing landslide control efforts and planning in the area. The paper illustrates that Shallow and deep landslides are common, causing damage to roads and settlements every year.
