Mass movement

Block Description

UK map showing distribution of GCR sites of GCR block MAS
Distribution of GCR sites of GCR block Mass movement

The subject of this GCR Block is the downward movement under gravity, on land, of a mass of superficial or surface-rock material, including landslide and ‘creep’ features. Some mass movements are small scale and gradual (creep), others are large-scale, episodic, and even catastrophic. Nearly 30 sites showing important features of scientific interest associated with landslides are included to represent relict and active types of rock failure such as soil creep, debris avalanches, earth flows, mud flows, rock falls, rock slides, planar and rotational slumps.
