Global Landslide Nowcast from LHASA L4 1 day 1 km x 1 km version 1.1 (Global_Landslide_Nowcast) at GES DISC

The Landslide Hazard Analysis for Situational Awareness (LHASA) model identifies locations with high potential for landslide occurrence at a daily temporal resolution. LHASA combines satellite‐based precipitation estimates with a landslide susceptibility map derived from information on slope, geology, road networks, fault zones, and forest loss. When rainfall is considered to be extreme and susceptibility values are moderate to very high, a “nowcast” is issued to indicate the times and places where landslides are more probable. Although the model could be run every half hour, this archive contains a daily record derived from a retrospective model run and spatial coverage is from 60°N to 60°S .
