What are the different types of Land slides??
The two major types of slides are 1.rotational slides
2. Translational slides.
Types of Landslides
Land slide causes
Weak or sensitive materials
Sheared, jointed, or fissured materials
Adversely oriented discontinuity (bedding, schistosity, fault, unconformity, contact, and so forth) Contrast in permeability and/or stiffness of materials.
Tectonic or volcanic uplift
Fluvial, wave, or glacial erosion of slope toe or lateral margins
Subterranean erosion (solution, piping)
Deposition loading slope or its crest
Vegetation removal (by fire, drought)
