A study of landslide probability in Skagit Basin as a collaboration (MOA) between University of Washington and Seattle City Light (SCL). The project's objective is to better understand landslides in the watersheds containing the electrical transmission lines and facilities of SCL's Skagit Hydroelectric Project. A recently completed landslide model (Strauch et al. 2018) will be run using subsurface flow derived from a basin calibrated hydrologic model (Distributed Hydrology Soil and Vegetation Model - DHSVM) at 150-m grid resolution. The modeling will estimate contemporary and future probability of landslide initiation and create landslide hazard maps at a 30-m resolution. Future hydrology will be generated from running DHSVM with future climatology from two different Global Climate Models (GCMs) with two different representative concentration pathways (RCPs) emission scenarios for two future time periods. The analysis will also evaluate the sensitivity of the landslide model to subsurface flow and reduced cohesion simulating a fire.
