    The landslides are delineated with polygon and line features as well as given 17 unique attributes, including a movement type, a movement azimuth, and a confidence rating (how certain the geologist is that the feature is a landslide). A percentage of the landslides are field-checked and all landslide polygons are reviewed by a licensed geologist.   Landslides and avalanches are defined according to the size or type of debris generated, distance moved, speed of flow and underlying geology. There are eight major types that occur in Canada -- rock avalanches, debris avalanches, snow avalanches, flowslides, rockslides, rock .

    Sri Lanka landslides kill at least 73 with scores more missing. Torrential rains continue to deluge island nation, with hundreds of thousands in temporary shelters Published: 21 May Debris avalanches and debris flows (both popularly called "mudslides") are shallow landslides, saturated with water, that travel rapidly downslope as muddy slurries.

    Avalanches, Landslides, and Mudslides by Radhika, Snovie, Nirupan, Andre What do you already know about Avalanches, Landslides, and Mudslides? Avalanches The rapid downward sliding of a mass of snow and ice. How are Avalanches created? disturbed/loose layer of a mountain breaks. Avalanches are caused by mass movement of snow or unstableness of snow. There are many reasons why areas experience high levels of avalanches or landslides. On the Appalachian Mountains in the US they experience deadly landslides. This is mainly due to the mountain having a high altitude therefore the snow builds up fast and becomes unstable.
