- ... The ages and sizes of landslides occurring in seismically active areas can be used to reconstruct the seismic history of the area and estimate the maximum moment magnitudes of past earthquakes. Here, we present a data set of 121 landslides discovered in northern Finland that were analyzed for their morphometric characteristics. We show that 89 debris slide type landslides in the data set are clust ...

- ... Postglacial faults (PGFs) are common SW-NE-trending features in the northern part of the Fennoscandian shield being attributed to former high-magnitude (Mw ≈ 7–8.2) earthquakes (Arvidsson, 1996). These are of interest for the long-term seismic hazard of deep geological nuclear waste repositories. The PGFs are still seismically active; and many of the deformation features, such as paleolandslides, ...
