Structural geology has recently become a key topic in landslide research. However, the link between regional structures, their cumulative contribution to rockslide development and their significance in a spatial framework is uncertain. We examine the influence of structures on rockslide susceptibility in the Storfjorden area, a 900 km2 fjord complex in western Norway that includes the monitored rockslide sites of Åknes and Heggursaksla. We have newly identified 52 potential rockslide sites from aerial photographs. The structural features critical for the development of large rockslides (fjord-dipping foliation, basal shear plane and breccia, extensional fracture and transfer fault) have a...
