      The objectives of this study were (1) to apply and evaluate a simplified slope-stability model to an area in Central Honduras that was severely affected by Hurricane Mitch, and (2) to develop landslide-susceptibility maps categorized according to local slope gradient ([alpha]) and relative wetness (W), the variables that most influence slope.

Entry stability analysis with the strength reduction method (SRM) The strength reduction modeling technique has a long history in numerical model analysis in rock slope stability engineering [].This modeling technique was adapted to underground coal mine entry analyses by Esterhuizen [] to address the need for a method to compare the effectiveness of different support systems when designing.

      Morphologically, the structural-denudational slopes tend to be straight or slightly convex and their slope does not exceed 20[degrees], averaging 10[degrees][degrees] (Fig. 25c). These slopes are typical source areas of the streams: due to favourable structural conditions, even though structural-denudational slopes represent only 10% of the. The Puerto Rico trench exhibits great water depth, extremely low gravity anomaly, and a tilted carbonate platform between (reconstructed) elevations of + m and m. we suggest that these features are manifestations of large vertical movements of a segment of the Puerto Rico Trench, its forearc, and the island of Puerto Rico that took place m.y. ago over a time period as short as

Most of the information that follows on physiography, geology, slope formation, landsliding and geotechnical data has been derived from “Slope Stability in the Appalachian Plateau, Pennsylvania and West Virginia” by Gray et al.

Used in a general sense, “slope” refers to any geometric element of the earth's solid surface; the entire landscape is made up of slope elements and thus the science of geomorphology is largely concerned with the study of slopes.

There is no genetic or locational connotation to the word “slope”; slopes may be subaerial, submarine (or by.

Studies across a broad range of drainage basins have established a positive correlation between mean slope gradient and denudation rates. It has been suggested, however, that this relationship breaks down for catchments where slopes are at their threshold angle of stability because, in such cases, denudation is controlled by the rate of tectonic uplift through the rate of channel incision and.

Topography affect slope hydrological processes and thus slope stability, and has been studied by several researchers (e.g.

Rhino’s subsidiary Rhino Eastern also holds a 51% equity interest in a joint venture with Patriot Energy that includes one underground metallurgical mine.

This numerical modelling of landscape evolution has been built around formulation of bedrock river processes and slope processes, and has mostly focused on high‐elevation passive continental margins and convergent zones; these models now routinely include flexural and denudational isostasy. This requirement is controversial in the steeply sloping Appalachian (U.S.A.) mining region.

The major goal of this research was to objectively evaluate the long-term slope stability and potential erosivity of central Appalachian AOC landforms.

Many AOC backfills in this region face long-term stability problems. Central and Southern Appalachian Geomorphology—Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia: Maryville, Tennessee to Washington, D.C. July 2‒9,Volume References Related.

Additionally, a mathematical denudation model is applied to take into account the effect of exogenic processes on the slope. The study results show that two periods of normal faulting in conjunction with massive interim denudational scarp recess is a valid model for the evolution of the northern wall of eastern Candor Chasma.

Landsliding is a recurring process in the southern Appalachian Highlands (SAH) region of the Central Hardwood Region. Debris flows, dominant among landslide processes in the SAH, are triggered when rainfall increases pore-water pressures in steep, soil-mantled slopes.

Over short timescales, the impact of life is quite apparent: rock weathering, soil formation and erosion, slope stability and river dynamics are directly influenced by biotic processes that.
