Sorry, that’s not right. Mass Movement is the downhill movement of cliff material under the influence of gravity.
Question 2 of 6
Which of the following is not a type of mass movement?
Well done, you smashed this question.
Sorry, that’s not right.
Question 3 of 6
Identify the type of mass movement shown in the image below.
Wrong answer – it’s slumping.
Question 4 of 6
Identify the type of mass movement being described below
In areas of more resistant cliff material erosion is greatest when waves break at the foot of a cliff. This causes erosion at the base of the cliff. This creates a wave-cut notch in the base of the cliff. As the notch increases in size the weight of the cliffs above become too much to support which leads to a landslide. This material will provide temporary protection for the cliff behind. However, once it has been removed by the sea this process will occur again. Where cliffs are made of more resistant material, wave cut platforms will be created.
Sorry, it’s a landslide
Question 5 of 6
True or false?
A rockfall involves fragments of rock breaking away from the cliff face, often due to freeze-thaw weathering.
Sorry, it’s true!
Question 6 of 6
This type of mass movement occurs when saturated soil and weak rock flows down a slope. These typically occur where cliffs are made up of boulder clay.
