Abstract

A small landslide block left a trail about 81 meters long on an 11½-degree slope in the Tuxer Voralpen, Austria. The movement is explained in terms of fluid pressure mechanics; hypothetically, the requisite pore pressure was caused by the loading of contiguous saturated segments of the slide path during rapid sliding.
