<p>Using a dataset of preexisting mapped landslides, we create two maps that provide a firstorder approximation of rockfall susceptibility for the state of New Mexico. In natural hazard assessments, the term 'susceptibility' is used to describe the natural ...

Rockyfor3D is a simulation model that calculates trajectories of single, individually falling rocks, in three dimensions (3D). The model combines physically-based, deterministic algorithms with stochastic approaches, which makes Rockyfor3D a so-called &lsquo;probabilistic ...
