Cohesion
can't find answer
Equilibrium
can't find answer
Angle of repose
The steepness of a slope that results when loose particles come to rest.
Slope Elements
-Waxing slope: increase of steepness
-Free Facing: steepest part of the slope
-Waning slope(debris): transport out-put out the system
Mass movement types
Falls, Avalanches, Slides, Flows, and Creep.
Falls
Occurs on a steeper slope, and is the fastest form of mass movement. Debris fall without hiting the slope.
Avalanches
Is a mass of falling and tumbling rock, debris, and soil.
Slides
When meteral don't meet in contect with the hill at all, and moves as a single large movement.
Flows
Moderate to fast slide that is being carried down hill. (slump like slide)
