Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 LANDSLIDES Mountain ranges are filled with various sources such as fresh water from rain & snow, fertile soil for farming, amazing views and different kinds of animals and plants. Living on mountains sounds comfortable, but there's also dangers as well. Soil creep is a slow moving of rock and soil down a gentle slope. It is the slowest type of landslides and most often unnoticeable. Soil creep causes cracked walls, leaning fences and poles, and bowed tree. Slumping is a movement of larger rocks and earth down a steep slope. Usually created by earthquake or heavy rainfalls. Avalanches are the fastest type of landslides. they are created by natural movements, such as earthquakes or weather events, or human movements, such as skiing or snowboarding. Mudslides, or lahars, are often created by heavy rain, earthquakes or active volcanoes. Snows melted by a volcano can be combined with rocks and soil to become a mudslide that can be up to 50m thick and travels up to 80kph. TYPES OF LANDSLIDES Pyroclastic flow is a super-heated avalanche of rock, ash and lava that rushes down the mountain faster than a train. It is usually created by volcanic activities. Landslides are made out of large scale of soil, mud, rocks or snow carried by the gravity. Sometimes they can be really slow, as few cm a year, or very rapid. This is the most common hazard in the mountain. Depends on what types of landslides, they can damage a little or the whole landscape. Landslides are natural hazard. It cannot be stopped, but it can be decreased by less vegetation clearing, road or mine constriction and rock blasting. If you ask the mountain to stop creating hazards, it wouldn't change. But you can reduce it by minimizing landscape irrigation or improve the water pipe. Over-watering or leaking water are most common human-motion cause of the landslides.
