Pleistocene valley fills dominated by glaciolacustrine sediments commonly occur in southern British Columbia and northern Washington. The fills contain multiple glaciolacustrine units separated by glacial tills and outwash gravels reflecting multiple episodes ...

Landslides from massive rock slope failure (MRSF) are a major geological hazard in many parts of the world. Hazard assessment is made difficult by a variety of complex initial failure processes and unpredictable post-failure behaviour, which includes transformation ...

<p>As a result of the widespread use of the landslide classifications of Varnes (1978) and Hutchinson (1988), certain terms describing common types of flow like mass movements have become entrenched in the language of engineering geology. Example terms include ...

The perturbation of natural processes operating in mountain environments, caused by recent climatic warming, ranges from tens of decades for moraine-dam failures to hundreds of years or more for landslides. The recognition that climatic change as modest as ...

Fragmental rockfall is characterized by the independent movement of individual rock fragments after detachment from a rock face. The continued operation of the process leads to the accumulation of talus slopes. On talus slopes the rockfall shadoew extends ...
