Types of mass-movements

From Boggs, Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, 5th ed., Table 2.1, p. 32


Features of a debris flow deposit:

From Boggs, Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, 5th ed., Figure 2.7, p. 37


Matrix strength supports grains in a debris flow:

From Boggs, Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, 5th ed., Figure 2.6, p. 33


Grain-to-grain interaction supports grains in a grain flow:

From Boggs, Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, 5th ed., Figure 2.6, p. 33


Features of a grain flow deposit:

From Boggs, Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, 5th ed., Figure 2.7, p. 37


Excess pore pressure supports grains in a liquified (fluidal) flow:
