Tutor description

Landslides, used here as a term to represent mass movement on the land surface that consist primarily of rock and/or soil and thus including rock falls and debris flows are an important landscape forming process, providing the main mechanism for sediment release from slope to permit transportation through fluvial system.

Geology.A GEOLOGICAL PAPER ON LINKING LANDSLIDES AND SURFACE EROSION.INTRODUCTIONLandslides, used here as a term to represent mass movement on the land surface that consist primarily of rock and/or soil and thus including rock falls and debris flows are an important landscape forming process, providing the main mechanism for sediment release from slope to permit transportation through fluvial system.This paper examines the link between landslides and surface erosion.Surface erosion and landslides are intimately related;involving erosion of rock, generation of sediment through various Earth surface environment.These processes and the deposits, and landforms that they generate have a fundamental importance on engineering, environmental and public safety issues on recovery of economic resources,and our understanding of Earth history.Therefore the paper focuses on the nature of erosion on landslides by examining different types of landslides and how they cause surface erosion ,although it begins describing the causes of landslides in general and the meaning of surface erosion.Surface erosionErosion is the pro
