Topitza | Rock fall and earth flow

WI_at095_641.jpg

This complex landslide at the E side of Topitza is connected to a geological hard-on-soft situation: hard limestone overlays much softer clastic sedimentary rocks. Rock falls in the limestone facilitate earth flow processes in the softer rock, proceeding farther down-valley.
