Typical features are descriptionbed of slides occurring in natural slopes of marine clay. This type of slide is characterised by the fact that the slides occur due to no apparent external causes, and also by the fact that, as the clay is involved in and remoulded by the slide, the shear strength is greatly lowered, and the clay assumes a fluid consistency.
