South America has a solid agricultural background, and there could still potentially be room to grow. It is one of the world leaders in agricultural production, and is in position to continue this trend for generations to come. Other South American countries have begun to follow the example Brazil has set in being the agricultural leader while the continent as a whole has profited from the benefits of exporting valuable food and other resources. South America is a hotbed for agriculture for two main reasons; the rich untapped natural resources, and the various climates the continent possesses.
This makes Malaysia prone to the landslide events as rainfall is one of the main triggering factors that can cause landslide. Landslides in Malaysia are mainly attributed to frequent and prolonged rainfalls, in many cases associated with monsoon rainfalls.
Of these, Ulu Klang area has received the most exposure. The area has constantly hit by fatal landslides since December This paper is aimed to investigate the correlation between the effective working rainfall and soil water index SWI methods with the landslide events in Ulu Klang, Malaysia.
In this study 15 landslide events that occurred in Ulu Klang areas between years to were investigated and analyzed using rainfall threshold based on effective working rainfall and soil water index SWI methods. The analysis results showed that these methods are significant tools that can be used to identify the rainfall critical threshold of landslide event.
