Abstract

Previous workers have correlated slope failures during rainstorms with rainfall intensity, rainfall duration, and seasonal antecedent rainfall. This note shows how such relationships can be interpreted using a periodic steady-state solution to the well-known linear pressure diffusion equation. The effects of storm frequency and magnitude are also successfully quantified using dimensionless attenuation factors and lag times. -from Author
