By preparing a 1/25000 scale geological map of Çayeli Region, lithostratigraphic units were seperated from oldest to youngest as follows; Hemşindere Formation (Santoniyen-Maastrihtiyen), Kaçkar Granitoid (Late Maastrihtiyen), Melyat Formation (Early-Middle Eosen), Pazar Formation (Sarmatian) and alluvium (Quaternary).

      Surficial weathering, on rocks of study area where climatic conditions presence to be on first place, has great importance. In the region, due to triggering of heavy rainfalls on 23rd of July 2002 and during the a couple of days, numerous landslides occured especially highly and completely weathered rocks. Inventory maps of these landslides were prepared by field works.

In this study, data obtained from different sources were evaluated by Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) techniques. Landslide susceptibility maps were produced using bivariate statistical analysis (BSA) and logistic regression analysis (LRA). On these susceptibility maps, five different susceptibility area were seperated. These are as follows; very low, low, medium, high and very high susceptible area. Performance analysis of these maps were carried out by comparing the actual landslides. On susceptibilty maps, produced with BSA 15 % of total area and 81 % of landslides, produced by LRA 19 % of total area and 92 % present landslides were determined as susceptible, high and very high susceptible areas. According to the results obtained from both analysis, performance analysis of susceptibility maps showed that these produced maps are suitable for use. LRA result where parameters evaluated all together and have higher performance might be preferred relatively. However, in future true performance of produced maps, will be evaluated when similar case of July 2002 meteorological event was happened.
