Summary

Rainfall on 9–13 September 2013 triggered at least 1,138 debris flows in a 3430 km 2 area of the Colorado Front Range. Most flows were triggered in response to two intense rainfall periods, one 12.5-hour-long period on 11–12 September, and one 8-hour-long period on 12 September. Data in this project pertain to an area bounded by N 40.0° – 40.375° and W 105.25° – 105.625° which includes many of the areas where high concentrations of debris flows occurred. These data include a subset of a map of landslide and debris flow scarps (Coe and others, 2014) and raster grids derived from the National Elevation Dataset. These data were used to test a new, parallel implementation of the Transient Rainfall Infiltration and Grid-Based Regional [...]

Purpose

These data were generated to study effects of intense rainfall on stability of slopes in an approximately 1340 km^2 area of the Colorado Front Range and to test a new version of the TRIGRS program that uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) library for parallel computing. The data can be used to test the MPI version of TRIGRS on other computing installations and for further studies of landslide initiation related to the storm of September 9-13, 2013, that affected northern Colorado.
