BALT2 Landslide Monitoring Site - Marin County, north of San Francisco

Detailed Description

The USGS “BALT2” site is located in Marin County, north of San Francisco, and consists of dataloggers monitoring the hillslope in the central part of the image.  This slope is typical for many in the Marin County region that have generated mobile debris flows in the past.  Evidence of two recent landslides are shown in the fore- and middle-ground.  The area consists of grasslands over an approximately 1-meter-deep sandy soil layer, underlain by sandstone.
