ALOS-2 coherence and slope maps show that loss of coherence is related to coseismic slope failures of slopes steeper than 30° on Mt. Kinabalu. a Post-seismic image correlation map of the descending tracks. Black outlines are post-seismic slope failures mapped from Landsat 8 images (Green polygons in panel c). Red lines are the active faults from this study. Blue line shows the trail to the summit of Mt. Kinabalu. b Preseismic correlation map of the same track, showing good correlation throughout the Mt. Kinabalu. c Landsat 8 image of Mt. Kinabalu acquired in Aug 2016 overlaid by the mapped landslides (green polygons). The area covered by could is mapped by other Landsat 8 and optical satellite images. d Slope map generated from SRTM data overlain with optically mapped slope failures. This map shows that slope failures caused by the earthquake correlate well with slopes steeper than 30°. e The western flank of Mt. Kinabalu after the Sabah earthquake. White patches on the slope are the new landslides areas triggered by the M w 6.0 mainshock
