Lithologic variations in slope development theory

Circular 485



This paper presents a comprehensive review and amplification of the writer's earlier slope development theory. In particular, the influence of lithology on evolving slope profiles is investigated and calculations are made for various conditions, such as presence of caprock, soft bottom, and hard and soft intermediate layers.
