(2016), Storm-triggered landslides in the Peruvian Andes and implications for topography, carbon cycles, and biodiversity, Earth Surface Dynamics, 4, 47-70, doi: 10.5194/esurf-4-47-2016.

Landslide rates (Rls, %yr/1) calculated by 1 km2 grid cell in Figure 2b from Clark et al. (2016). In the table landslide rates appear as L_occurrence.

Hillslope turnover (tls, yr) rates calculated as the time for landslides, at the current measured rate (Rls), to impact 100% of each cell area in Figure 2c from Clark et al. (2016). In the table landslide derived hillslope turnover labelled as L_turnover.

Topographic shadow (http://www.hydroshare.org/resource/bdb9c4b4788d4141845947c81e5cceba) was removed from mapped landslides (http://dx.doi.org/10.4211/hs.90487bcf16e44c62a677ae33ef95e968) and then landslide rates were determined for a 1km2 grid.
