CitationWelty, J.W., Roddy, M.S., Alger, C.S. and Brabb, E.E., 1988, Bibliography of Arizona Landslide Maps and Reports. Arizona Gological survey Open File Report, OFR-88-14, 16 p.
DescriptionThe 146 maps and reports listed here that refer to landslides within Arizona identify greater than 500 known mass movements. These occurrences are plotted on a 1:500,000-scale map (Welty and others, 1988). This bibliography lists only those citations that report Quaternary mass wasting. An equal or greater number of older (mostly Tertiary) landslide occurrences are present in Arizona, but as this effort is an outgrowth of the U.S. Geological Survey's ground-failure hazards reduction program the older events are not germane to this compilation. This report, Welty and others (1988), and Realmuto (1985) are the results of an effort to better understand the distribution of landslides in Arizona, and to provide a baseline of information that could lead to a greater understanding of the geologic settings that are prone to mass wasting in Arizona.
