![Figure][1]</img> Landslide debris caused destruction after the September earthquake in Hokkaido, Japan. PHOTO: KYODO/NEWSCOM Landslide debris contributed to extensive damage and the majority of lives lost after Japan's recent 6.7–moment magnitude crustal earthquake, which occurred in the early hours of 6 September in Hokkaido ([ 1 ][2]). Despite these tragic losses, the overall recovery effort was largely successful thanks to Japan's disaster preparedness and investment in combating its frequent earthquakes. Other regions, such as the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest, are at risk of even stronger subduction zone earthquakes but at much longer recurrence intervals [250 to 500 years ([ 2 ][3]–[ 4 ][4])]. Although northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia may not be able to invest as much as Japan given the infrequency of seismic activity, thoroughly documenting prehistoric landslides recorded in the topography could be a cost-effective strategy to understand the consequences of previous earthquakes and make targeted preparations for the next Cascadia event. There are features in the Pacific Northwest landscape that may hint at seismic history, but the scars of massive landslides are now obfuscated by verdant forests ([ 5 ][5]). The impacts of landslides to infrastructure after a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake may have severe effects on post-earthquake recovery, possibly increasing casualties ([ 6 ][6]). Characterizing the scale, distribution, age, and impacts of past landslides is now possible through advances in a technology called lidar ([ 7 ][7]), which enables the creation of high-resolution topographic maps beneath the forest canopy. Scientists and state agencies are leveraging this technology ([ 8 ][8]), along with field-based landslide chronology, to better understand the possible impacts of the next Cascadia subduction zone event on infrastructure critical to postearthquake recovery. With improved characterization of the style and chronology of past coseismic landslides, we will be able to more reliably assess how and where future landslides might occur and make strategic decisions about preparedness and resilience. However, careful consideration may be required for more refined landslide mapping near private property, as this information can affect zoning, property values, and insurance rates ([ 9 ][9]). We must leverage the experiences of our international counterparts, advances in technology, and collaborative efforts between planners and scientists to successfully prepare for the persisting impacts of landslides well after the earthquake has passed. 1.
