Wherever colluvium or alluvium covers the sandstone outcrop at a depth of more than half a meter, the nature of vegetation totally changes.
The new report, however, suggests that water in the colluvium is causing soil above it to shift.
Wahl (2003) determined that two stratigraphic relationships are linked to most of the failures: the presence of highly compact, impermeable day-rich lodgement till overlain by highly permeable colluvium; and impermeable weathered bedrock in file form of saprolite overlain by permeable colluvium.
Areas of intermediate slope store considerable amounts of colluvium, which are prone to erosion when the vegetation cover is disturbed (Prosser and Abernethy 1996).
Other anomalies in the Mt Venn area locate along the margins of the gabbro complex with no obvious source of the anomaly detected on the surface or are covered by colluvium and alluvium.
Calcareous uplands and toe-slopes contain local colluvium and alluvium along swales and gullies that often lead gradually into the more the extensive--and locally exogenous-- alluvium on terraces along broader valleys.
A total of 115 road cut samples were collected along the new roads in 100-foot, 50-foot or 25-foot intervals, depending upon whether the road was in soils, colluvium or bedrock.
The alluvium and colluvium of the major and minor valley floors are most affected by salinity.
Three of the spatial variables capture the spatial relations of the soil-formative environmental factors: distance to streams, topographic wetness index, and percentage of colluvium from competing bedrocks.
northern portion is also covered with >10 metres of colluvium.
Because the failure plane of a slump lies beneath the surface, in either bedrock or colluvium (weathered material that has moved downslope), determination of the size or even the full extent of a slump can be difficult.
