Abstract

The complexity of mass-movement phenomena has led to a profusion of confusing terminology that this paper attempts to clarify. The most useful classification are those that employ as their primary criteria the type of movement involved, with secondary considerations of velocity and the amount and phase of water. Recently, interest has focused on the massive, subaqueous failures that can generate huge tsunamis, as well as the massive, dangerous collapses of volcanoes. Future slope-failure research is expected to incorporate quantitative and geotechnical assessments of process mechanics, including remote sensing, numerical indices and modeling, and advanced assessments of flow rheology
