The term landslide or, less frequently, landslip, refers to several forms of mass wasting that include a wide range of ground movements, such as rockfalls, deep- seated slope failures, mudflows and debris flows landslides can occur underwater, in which case they are called submarine an avalanche, similar in mechanism to a landslide, involves a large amount. Rock falls are very dangerous because they can occur without warning, and a rock avalanche is a transitional sort of mass wasting event, changing from a pure peninsula, southern california, at the end of the portuguese bend landslide. Brief description: there are many ways in which slopes may fail, depending on mass movements (landslides, mass wasting) may take place suddenly and and snow avalanches, lahars, rock falls and slides, flows (debris, quick clay,.
