The aim of the present study was, therefore, to attempt to relate the form and evolution of hillslopes in an area subject to landsliding to the strength properties of the slope mantle, and to assess the significance of the results from the point of view of geomorphology, rather than of engineering.
Table of ContentsIntroduction -- The environment of the study area -- Field methods of slope profile measurement, and hillslope form in the study area -- Residual shear strength and its measurement -- The relationship of hillslope form and evolution to the properties of the slope mantle -- Conclusion
