The Study of Mud Slides

There is an interesting article in Nature.com sent to me by Anni Agren on global mudslides. Of course, the cover photo is our own local phenomena. I love this global map, showing Mud Creek, California, as if it were a town.

The article is not accurate, at least as far as Mud Creek is concerned, “And after two years of slow movement, the Mud Creek landslide in Big Sur, California, rapidly wiped out half a kilometre of the state’s popular Highway 1 in May this year.” Mud Creek  has been moving a helluva lot longer than 2 years. At least 37, according to Rock Knocker, who has the photos to prove it. Nevertheless, the article is worth reading Here.
