Map and model input and output data for the north Charlotte Creek Basin, Douglas County, Oregon, for analysis of debris-flow initiation resulting from the storm of November 17 - 19, 1996

August 25, 2020

Heavy rainfall during mid-November 1996 induced debris flows throughout the southern Oregon Coast Range, including more than 150 in the immediate vicinity of north Charlotte Creek (Coe and others, 2011). Data in this project pertain to a 2.4-km2 area centered at N 43.65° and W 123.94° which an area where high concentrations of debris flows occurred. These data include a subset of a map of landslide and debris flow polygons (Coe and others, 2011) and raster grids derived from a lidar dataset acquired in 2008 – 2009 (https://gis.dogami.oregon.gov/maps/lidarviewer/). The project area covers a tributary basin west of Charlotte Creek, southwest of the Umpqua River, and is in the southern part of the Deer Head Point 7.5-minute quadrangle. These data were used to test an implementation of the Transient Rainfall Infiltration and Grid-Based Regional Slope-Stability Model (TRIGRS, see Baum and others, 2011) for the timing and distribution of rainfall-induced shallow landslides, a simplified three-dimensional slope stability analysis method (Baum and others, 2012), and for testing soil depth models (Baum, 2017).
