At all other localities we found the salamander near rock outcrops or in rocky colluvium.
The colluviums of these slides in the lower part are joined into one large landslide toe.
Currently, the slope consists of a very poorly sorted colluvium comprised of fill, residuum, and substantial amounts of concrete, asphalt, metal, wood, ceramic, and plastic particles introduced from the destruction of the apartment buildings during the slope failure.
Thin-skinned landslides most commonly occur on south-facing slopes that exceed 34[degrees] at the interface between bedrock and the overlying colluvium. These landslides are complex events, which begin as thin translational slides that evolve quickly into debris flows.
This means that, as a long term average, 87.7% of detached soil particles are stored within the drainage basin as colluvium (rill, gully, and colluvial fan storage) or as alluvium (floodplain and channel storage) pending increases in sediment conveyance rates.
Fraction of 0.01-0.05 mm dominates all horizons of the profile of Praha-MO except for horizon IlCk, which consists of marl colluvium. [Ab.sub.1] and [Ab.sub.2] horizons have a high content of particles <0.001 mm in size: a feature ussually characteristic for soils affected by the process of clay illuviation.

2) consists of: unit 1) the older of two pre-Illinoian loesses mixed with sandstone residuum derived from the Mansfield Formation, unit 2) a younger pre-Illinoian loess (the Cagles Loess of Wayne 1963), unit 3) pre-Illinoian lacustrine sediments, unit 4) a pre-Illinoian till (glacial diamicton), unit 5) pre-Illionian colluvium, unit 6) an Illinoian till, unit 7) Illionian outwash, unit 8) a probably late Sangamonian sandy unit, probably mainly of eolian origin, unit 9) a probably early Wisconsinan sandy loess, and unit 10) the late Wisconsinan loess.
A sediment budget consists of input (soil erosion), intrabasinal storage (deposition of alluvium or colluvium within the basin), and output (sediment yield, or the amount of sediment that leaves the watershed).
This implies that RUSLE can estimate the sediment actually leaving a field and does not account for deposition as colluvium (intrabasinal storage).
In detail, the heterogeneous surficial materials in the main valleys and on the plateaux include variable thicknesses of colluvium derived from till and marine deposits, marine sands, silts and clays, alluvial deposits, till-like deposits, and poorly indurated bedrock.
Areas of intermediate slope store considerable amounts of colluvium, which are prone to erosion when the vegetation cover is disturbed (Prosser and Abernethy 1996).
