S. BHALAI Landslide susceptibility of Portland, Jamaica

related losses. This landslide susceptibility assessment procedure used in creating this model for Portland is continually refined as the geotechnical properties of the local terrain is increasingly understood. The refinements are applied in the creation of new models and are

extended to boost the prediction capacity of earlier models. The 2009 edition of the landslide susceptibility map for St. Thomas (Mines and Geology Division, 2009) represents the latest model which is a refinement of that model (Mines and Geology Division, 2004b) created five years ago.
