Mass Movement

Regolith is a layer of loose material which moves downhill under the influence of gravity spurred on by the process of weathering.  The process of movement brought about by gravity is called mass movement.  Mass movement may be slow e.g. soil creep, or fast e.g. bogbursts, landslides, mudflows.
