Question

As a geologist working in a foreign country for the first time, you are asked to assess the potential for mass

wasting in a particular region. Define ‘mass wasting’ first. What aspects or characteristics (geologic, geographic, biologic, etc. – you will need to cover all these, they are in the textbook) of the region are you interested in for your assessment? Also, how could you possibly determine if mass wasting has been active in the recent geologic past (100’s or 1000’s of years)?
