a geological phenomenon which includes a wide range of ground movement
slope material that become saturated
occur much more during periods of high precipitation
characterized by chaotic movements of rocks soil and debris mixed with water or ice
happens in ateas that has slopes with high permiable soils
deep seated landslide
landslides in which the sliding surface is mostly deeply located below the maximum rooting depth of trees
landslide causing tsunamis
landslides that occur under sea or have impact into water can generate tsunamis.
in whick the surface of rupture is curved concavely
moves along a roughly planar surface
moving mass consist of a single unit or a few closely units that move down slope as a coherent mass
abrupt movements of masses of geologic materials
toppling failures are distinguished
form of massive mass movement
an earthly consisting of materials tbat are wet enough to flow rapidly and that contains atleast 50% sand silt and clay sized particles.
