This satellite image interpretation shows a landslide inventory map produced by the British Geological Survey. The scale of mapping was between 1:1,000 and 1:10,000 and the satellite image resolution is 0.5 m. Insets show detailed mapping. The Crucita area is dominated by 31 landslides (14 translational, 16 rotational - mainly along river banks - and 1 large potential landslide complex along the coast). The river bank landslides are likely caused by a ombination of high water levels and seismic shock. This inventory requires field verification.
