Hi everyone, was just wondering if anyone knew or could explain to me what these things are. I’ve been looking online and at all my books but I’m not sure if it just has a different name on my list but I don’t want to learn the wrong thing.
It says: Mass movement (sliding and slumping)
If anyone could help explain what these things are or where I’d find a diagram I’d be very grateful
Thanks

Ok,
So we looked at 4 types of mass movements in class:
Landslides
Very fast rates of movement, consolidated material
Earthquakes are possible, trigger factors could be heavy rains/storms
Mudflow
Usually fast movement
Consolidated material
Earthquakes and storms can be a trigger factor to mudflows
Rockfall
Instantaneous fall
Consolidated material
Earthquakes + storms can trigger them
Rotational slip
Can be fast or slow
Unconsolidated material
Earthquakes + storms can be a trigger factor


Hope this helps
