Landslides occur as gravitational forces exceed the strength of the material in a slope. Rock slides, debris slides, and slumps “slide” on a weak, fractured, slick, clayey, or water-saturated surface. This two-page sheet discusses why landslides occur, how risk can be reduced, and the anatomy of a landslide. Perfect for any beginner looking for basic landslide information.
