        Global Landslide Catalog

        This NASA video describes the Global Landslide Catalog that NASA actively maintains as it tracks landslides triggered by intense rainfall worldwide. The accompanying map shows the distribution of these landslides that occurred globally from 2007–2013. Scientists use this up-to-date inventory of landslide data to improve understanding of locations and causes of this destructive natural hazard.
