    I only know a bit about it in terms of the formation of corries; rotational slippage is the movement of the compacted snow (ice) down hill under the force of gravity...is this what you meant?

    A rotational slip is a type of landslide where material moves downwards along a curved slip plane.

    Rotational slip can also refer to the circular movement of ice as the force of gravity encourages it to move downhill while it is trapped inside a cirque/corrie.
