AbstractA brief review of the regional aspects of the landslide problem in the St. Lawrence River lowlands is presented. More detailed studies of landslides in the area around Ottawa are stressed. A method of analysis for slopes is suggested in which particular attention is given to the weathered surface layers of the clay. Some of the conditions leading to large retrogressive landslides are considered.
