Two Contrasting Landslides  I came across these two articles on The Landslide Blog.  THE FIRST is probably the slowest landslide measured - 2mm per year. It is big - a block of limestone 900m by 400m sliding over a layer of clays and marls. It is in Tunisia and it looks spectacular. Obviously a still photograph rather than a video. THE SECOND is rather faster. It occurred in the Dolomites on the 9th October at the Punta dei Ross, Croda Marcora. It becomes rather hectic at the 38 second mark. The measurements become m per sec rather than mm per year. Both landslides are fascinating.
