Structural mapping of potential rockslide sites in the Storfjorden area, western Norway: the influence of bedrock geology on hazard analysis

Forkortet: The western coast of Norway is particularly vulnerable to active rockslide development due to the recent post-glacial uplift and the deep incision of the fjords created by glacial activity, leading to extremely steep fjord sides. The purpose of this work was to determine the influence of structural geology on the hazard analysis related to large rock avalanches in the Storfjorden area. This is an area were several historical rock avalanches and related tsunamies have to disasters with many people killed.
