<p>This paper presents a case of a lignite mine in Northern Greece with excavated slopes exceeding 100-120m in depth in which substantial movement is occurring, with an average rate 10-20mm/day. The Mavropigi mine is very important for the power supply of ...

Given that clay-rich landslides may become mobilized, leading to rapid mass movements (earthflows and debris flows), they pose critical problems in risk management worldwide. The most widely proposed mechanism leading to such flow-like movements is the increase ...
