Fluvial erosion can set off landsliding by way of undermining slope bases. Landsliding can accentuate erosion by way of supplying slope fabric into valley flooring. the result of dendrochronological reports have authorized a greater knowing of the comfort saw in parts the place landslides and erosion are coupled.
