Abstract

Deep-seated Gravitational Slope Deformations (DGSDs) are not considered hazardous phenomena, because they evolve very slowly. However, they must not be neglected when defining slope instability in a territory, and the related hazard implications. Despite their slow deformation rates, DGSDs may cause damage to surface and underground (e.g., tunnels) structures. In addition, the may evolve into faster mass movements, or favour collateral landslide processes.
