Rockfall susceptibility maps for New Mexico
Daniel J. Koning and Mark Mansell
This project was initiated in order to better evaluate the potential hazard posed by rockfalls in the state of New Mexico. Maps showing rockfall susceptibility (i.e., where rockfalls could be expected to occur) could serve as a tool to identify regions in the state where rockfall risk should be considered by public and private planners, as well as the NM Department of Transportation. Such maps would also be essential precursors of complete hazard maps, which would incorporate other rockfall parameters such as magnitude (intensity) and frequency of occurrence. These hazard maps could then be folded into risk maps, which incorporate potential costs and societal impacts. The rockfall susceptibility maps presented in this report will also assist the NM Department of Homeland Security in preparing for their 2018 update for the N.M. State Hazard Mitigation plan for FEMA. Funding for this project was obtained via a subgrant through the NM Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (FEMA4152-DR-NM-020).
