Mass Wasting & Landslides

Dr. Manishika Jain explains the conceptual basis for mass wasting and landslides along with the major components of landslides, causes and areas prone to landslides.

  • Mountains erode and rocks and debris slide and fall down mountain slopes

  • Large movement of rock, soil and debris downward

  • Type of erosion

  • Happen suddenly or slowly.

  • Increased steepness increases mass wasting

  • Increased water can wash away small particles

  • Decreased vegetation is more prone to mass wasting.

  • Earthquakes have ability to break off sections of mountains or hills, causing them to slide down the slope.
