Abstract : Research results in geography, geology and botany are summarized. Remote sensing applications in the detection of revegetating natural and human-related rapid slope mass movements of the class debris slides/debris flows include debris slide scar, debris flow track, debris fan and floodplain modification detection and mapping. Field research to establish ground conditions for remote sensing missions also shed light on movement mechanisms, post storm events, and sediment volumes involved in slide scar movements.
