The role of soil creep and slope failure in the landscape evolution of a head water basin : field measurements in a zero order basin of northern Japan

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Field measurements of soil creep and slope stability were conducted on a nose, side-slope and hollow in a zero order basin near Sapporo, Hokkaido, northern Japan, and the preferential location of soil creep and slope failure was determined. Soil creep was continuously measured by the strain probe method at 3 sites from 1994 to 1995, and was compared with soil moisture changes and a near-saturated condition, which was most likely induced by shrink-swell activity of soil
