Other points on the major earthflow also showed substantial movement over the duration of the study period.
Pins on the northeast slump, not including pins located on the major earthflow, moved an average of 15 cm during the study period, whereas points on the southwest slump moved an average of 11 cm.
As in other areas of Atlantic Canada, rockfalls, earthflows
and small debris flows are common along highway cuts and steep river valleys.
Susceptibility assessments of shallow earthflows
triggered by heavy rainfall at three catchments by logistic regression analysis.
Rather it is when the regolith exhibits "rapid colonization over large areas triggered by an acute, perhaps unique, event" and slides or flows abruptly, causing environmental hazards such as earthflows
, mudflows, landslides, and avalanches that movement is noted (Parker 1993, p.
