April 2015 Rainfall Data and the relationship of Fatal Landslides to Rainfall (SW Monsoons)

With the monsoons just around the corner, I thought it pertinent to post two graphs; the centre one is from Dr David Petley's recent blog on the 'Timing of the Landslide Season in Nepal'. The lower graph is from here
Though the graphs are for Nepal and Darjeeling, they undoubtedly highlight the relationship of rainfall to fatal landslides in the Himalayas.
