Short summary
Earthquakes have triggered numerous landslides, and much progress has been made in their study. But, so far, the dynamic behavior of slope disasters still lacks understanding, such as whether there is a definite energy and spacial distribution of earthquake-induced landslides or whether giant landslides and small landslides follow different formation mechanisms. In this study, we attempt to answer these questions from the point of view of the self-organized critical (SOC) theory.
