Landslides are among the most destructive forces of nature. Estimating susceptibility through modeling is an essential tool for
planning and mitigation efforts. Some regions, however, are too dangerous or lack the capacity to develop extensive inventories for rigorous analyses. Remote sensing and GIS allow for initial risk assessment and hazard planning. Data derived primarily from remote sensing, or developed before and during war efforts of the last few decades were used for this study of landslide susceptibility in Afghanistan.
