    Subaqueous Mass Movements Mass wasting processes also occur on steep slopes in the ocean basins. A slope failure can occur due to over-accumulation of sediment on slope or in a submarine canyon, or could occur as a result of a shock like an earthquake. slope by flowing water rather than vertically as in many dry granular media xperiments. The slopee failure mechanism in the experiments is therefore the same as that in natural subaqueous grain flows: at the top of the slope a wedge of grains is built up (at the static angle of repose) due to the sudden flow.

    Breaching is a style of retrogressive subaqueous slope failure controlled by dilation and consequent pore pressure drop; it has the potential to generate turbidity currents that build thick successions of turbidites. we present pore pressure measurements made during breaching failure, as well as a physical model that shows how the pore pressure field within the failing deposit is connected to.

As a consequence, there are many examples in fjords of both loss of life and extensive damage to port facilities and settlements. Thus the study of subaqueous slope failures is environmentally important, particularly in predicting their occurrence and by: 8.

Whereas some slides run out and further evolve into highly mobile turbidity currents, others maintain a continuum-like structure and remain frontally confined. The different failure modes impose different hazard scenarios, making an understanding of their origin crucial for reliable hazard assessments.

Subaqueous Mass Transport Deposits from Outcrops to Seismic Profiles. There have been several cases of subaqueous slope failures that have been directly linked to human activity and onshore development; for instance, the landslide near Finneidfjord, Norway, may have been triggered by engineering works (e.g.

loading the upper slope though placement of fill or blasting for road construction) along the coastline (Vardy et al., ).

An examination of ancient and contemporary submarine landslides and their impact Landslides are common in every subaqueous geodynamic context, from passive and active continental margins to oceanic and continental intraplate settings.

They pose significant threats to both offshore and coastal areas due to their frequency, dimensions, and terminal velocity, capacity to travel great distances. Special Publication Published online 11/06/ Print copies available from 08/07/ This GSL volume focuses on underwater or subaqueous landslides with the overarching goal of understanding how they affect society and the environment.

rd. June at one of the opencast mines of WCL. A loading machine was buried while two people working near the failure site died. The dump slipped forward to a distance of 18 m (Figure 1).

This type of failure usually takes place in densely-packed sand due to its dilative behaviour under shear. Breaching flow slides are accompanied by the generation of turbidity currents.Manuscript accepted for publication in: Ogata et al., (eds).
