|Rotational slide results in a concave surface.|
|Translational slide moves along a roughly planar surface with little rotation or backward tilting.|
|Rockfalls happen when masses of rocks or boulders become detached from steep slopes or cliffs and move abruptly downhill.|
|Debris flow is a rapid mass movement of loose soil, rock, organic matter, and water as a slurry that flows downslope.|
|Earthflow is a viscous flow of fine-grained materials that have been saturated with water.|
|Creep is the imperceptibly slow, steady, downward movement of slope-forming soil or rock. The bluff changes shape but doesn’t fall apart.|
