  9. A natural disaster that involves the breakup and downhill flow of rock, mud, water and anything caught in the path; A vote won by a wide or overwhelming majority
  10. (landslides) Mass wasting or mass movement of rock or soil downhill. Often triggered by seismic events or heavy rainfall.
  11. the movement of large amounts of soil, rocks, mud, and other debris downward and outward along a slope.
  12. A general term for a mass movement landform and a process characterized by moderately rapid to rapid (greater than 30 cm per year) downslope transport by means of gravitational stresses, of a mass of rock and regolith that may or may not be water saturated.
  13. a rapid downslope mass movement where water in the soil and rock has accumulated to sufficiently increase stress and lubricate bedding planes. The bedding planes will usually be (near) parallel to the angle of slope.
  14. Unconsolidated material that becomes unstable due to overloading or water saturation and slides down-slope.
  15. A general term for relatively rapid types of mass movement, such as debris flows, debris slides, rockslides, and slumps.
  16. A geological phenomenon that causes the sudden or rapid movement of the ground or ground level materials (boulders, gravel, etc.), from higher to lower elevation. ...
  17. Downslope movement of rock, soil, and mud.

  20. A sudden movement of rock and soil down a slope.
  21. The perceptible downward sliding or falling of masses of rock or soil; can include earthflows, debris flows, rock avalanches, and rock falls.
  22. The rapid downslope movement of soil and rock material, often lubricated by groundwater, over a basal shear zone; also the tongue of stationary material deposited by such an event.
  23. The failure of a sloped bank of soil or rock in which the movement of the mass takes place along a surface of sliding.
  24. (F.: Glissement de terrain; S.: Deslizamiento de terreno): A slope Mass Earth movement where a soil or substrata mass slides over a contact surface called sliding surface.
  25. A general term for a wide variety of processes and landforms involving the down slope movement under the force of gravity of masses of soil and rock material.
