Hatanaka et al. Fig. 2 Location map of the study object area Fig. 3 Topographic map of the study area alternating layers of mudstone and tuff (Fig. 4). On the other hand, volcanic tuff is primary distributed in the southern part of the study area. Field survey was conducted in order to delineate structural boundaries and geotechnical properties of outcrops studied in the area. This chapter shows photo of typical outcrop and describes the conditions. Figure 5a shows collapsed section of the slope which is composed of tuff derived from the Josoji Formation.

Landform in study area is undulating terrain, and slope is quite steep in some areas. Slope surface is covered by flourished vegetation. The relative elevation difference is about 120 m. The study area is is located in the Wuyun-Jieya new rift zone. The north side is Handaqi virgation and the south side is Shuhe upwarping zone. The existence and activity of the Heilongjiang fracture control and influence the tectonic activity of this area, especially the occurrence, development and evolution of tectonic 26 W.

Relationship between snow and landslide has been studied in the past. Shiraishi (1988) studied generation mechanism of snow melting landslides. Matsuura (1998) reported that snow melt is one of the major triggering factors of landslides. Also, on the basis of study of snow melting prediction in existence and snow accumulation load, Matsuura (1998) reported problems in prediction of landslide occurrence due to snow melting. From observational result of landslide displacement amount, Sato et al. (2004) has studied motion characteristic of landslide in snow season.
