Abstract

The results presented here highlight the importance of synthesising standard geomorphological site investigation techniques with quantifiable rock geotechnical parameters, in order to understand slope form and development. Field research has been undertaken along the Napier Range of the Kimberley Region. The study uses the bounding cliffs of an ancient limestone reef complex, which displays marked variations in morphology from steep, vertical cliffs on the one hand, to smooth concavo-convex forms on the other
