Mass Movement

what is mass movement the movement of loose material down a slope under the influence of gravity
what is the loose material known as regolith
what are the factors that influence mass movement Slope or Gradient Vegetation Water Human Activity
explain how the Slope or gradient influences mass movement The steeper the gradient the faster the loose material can move down the slope, a gentler slope will have a slower movement of regolith
explain how vegetation influences mass movement Roots of plants and trees keep the soil together and make it more stable. this can help to prevent mass movement
explain how water influences mass movement Water makes the regolith heavier, causing it to move faster down the slope
explain how human activity influences mass movement Humans can speed up the process of mass movement by making upland areas unstable if they cut into the hillsides to build roads or if they quarry in the area
name the four types of mass movement Soil Creep Mudflow Landslide Bog Burst
Tell me the speed of mass movement Slow
tell me the speed of Mudflows Rapid
tell me the speed of bogbursts idk tbh
Tell Me the speed of landslide Very Rapid
