Complex landslide deposits

Computer Code: CPLX Preferred Map Code: notEntered
Status Code: Index Level
Age range: Holocene Epoch (QH) — Holocene Epoch (QH)
Lithological Description: Complex landslide deposits are formed by landslides which exhibit at least two types of movement (falling, toppling, sliding, flowing, spreading) in sequence. Many landslips are complex, although one type of movement may dominate over the others at certain areas within a slide or at a particular time (for example: rockfall-debris flow).
