FIGURE 12.23 (a) In 2012 this massive boulder dislodged from a steep hillslope in Athens, Ohio, and, propelled by gravity, crashed onto the residential street below, fortunately injuring no one. (b) In central Utah, gravity recently caused a large section of material to detach, slide, and flow downslope.

What made the material in these two examples stop moving?

To determine

The reason the materials in these two examples stopped moving.

Explanation

A surface material on a slope that lacks the strength or stability to resist the gravitational force will respond as creeping, falling, sliding, or by moving downslope until they arrive at a ground that is characterized by a gentle slope or sufficient friction to resist further movement. It results in the thinning of soil and regolith on steep slopes and thickening on gentle slopes...
