Abstract

An experimental slope was constructed in a 5 m x 5 m square refrigerated tank. The slope was formed of four sections, each consisting of regolith (soil) collected from a distinct bedrock lithology (granite, limestone, mudstone, and slate). Frost heaving and surface downslope soil movement were determined after each of 15 freezing cycles, and the profiles of soil movement with depth for each soil type were measured at the end of the 15th cycle. Mass movement rates were shown to be strongly related to the silt content of the soils
