Types of Mass wasting
Mass Wasting- Fall
A rock fragment gets dislodged and falls.
Mass Wasting- Slide
Or also known as a landslide. Instantaneous collapse of a slope.
A portion of a water-saturated slope moves a limited distance downhill
originates in a drainage basin in arid country when a heavy rain occurs.
involves slope failure in chick the rock of regolith moves downward and at same timie rotates outward.
a section of a slope becomes unstable, owing to the addition of water and flows downhill.
the slowest and least perceptible form of mass wasting consists of a very gradual downhill movement of soil.
