Slopes and slopes processes : research over the past decade

Auteur :
BROOKS, S.M.

Description :
This particular time period has seen considerable wide-ranging advances in slope research. There has been an almost complete turnaround in the approach taken towards slope research. Two linked themes provide the principal focus for this article. First, recognition of the importance of differentiated soil profiles (and vegetation) to slope development that has underpinned much recent research. Secondly, the development of computational techniques that has enabled such research to be promoted, as both larger (long-term slope development) and smaller (detailed soil profile hydrology) scales can be tackled using state-of-the-art hardware and software.
