From the Abstract: "More than 250 landslides were triggered across the eastern volcanic islands of Chuuk State in the Federated States of Micronesia by torrential rainfall from tropical storm Chata'an on July 2, 2002. [...] This report first presents an overview of the landslide event, the types and distribution of landsliding triggered by Chata'an, and individual descriptions of some of the significant landslides. The report then discusses continuing hazards from landslides for the islands affected by Chata'an. To address landslide hazard, the report presents a landslide (debris-flow) hazard map and discusses possible uses of this map."
