Slope failures in the Ochil Hills, Scotland, november 1984


Intense rainfall in November 1984 caused several slope failures on the steep slopes of the Ochil Hills-Each failure was of soil and till, no more than 2 m thick over bedrock in a steep bowl. From 30-350 m3 of sediment was removed. Failure seems to have been by shallow sliding triggered by saturation, but each slide became a debris flow. The frequency of heavy rains is increasing and similar failures occurred nearby the following year
