This map shows both geological features and hazards as a result of mass movements in the Mirave Basin, Peru, which is classified as a hyperarid environment. This lithological map shows the recent alluvial and storm-water deposits resulting from debris flow. In this study, the evaluation of the source of debris flows in the Mirave Basin has identified that erosion processes on hillsides maximize geologic hazards and associated risks to human communities.
