mLS is a function that estimates the landslide magnitude (mLS) from cutoff (smallest area that follows power law), beta (power-law exponent), and an array of areas derived from a landslide inventory following the methods of Tanyas and others (in prep). The function plots the best power-law fit for the medium and large landslides and the frequency-area distribution of the analyzed inventory. It also returns the corresponding mLS (landslide-event magnitude) value.
