Document title

The temporal and spatial development of landslides in the Axmouth Lyme regis undercliffs national nature reserve, Devon

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A chronology of landsliding is presented, including suggestions as to a date for initiation. Periods of activity known from historical sources are correlated with known periods of climatic deterioration. The current morphology of the landslide slopes is closely related to the geological succession and structure. Examples of geomorphological maps, slope categories maps and cross sections are presented. It is suggested that whole-slope failures in this region have a maximum frequency of once in 120 to 150 years.
