This is an experimental project, and should be used for informational purposes only. At times this analysis will fail to indicate a critical risk of slide activity when actual risk is present, and at times it will indicate a high risk of slide activity when there is little actual risk.

This project should not be used as the sole basis for deciding how to respond to heavy rain events that may produce landslides. For those kinds of decisions, consult established sources such as NOAA, NWS, and other professional forecasting services.

Limitations of a river-based approach to landslide monitoring

As an experimental project, there are a number of known limitations of this analysis. Here are a number of known issues with the current state of this project:
