Abstract

This review focuses on recent Canadian contributions to hillslope geomorphology, and emphasizes geotechnical studies of mass movement phenomena in the Canadian Cordillera, including debris flows, rock avalanches, talus slopes, rock creep, and slow earthflow. A brief discussion is included of quick-clay flow slides in eastern Canada, and gelifluction phenomena in arctic and alpine areas. Comparisons are made with similar geotechnical work conducted in the Pacific-rim steeplands
