Abstract
Slopes undergoing deep-seated gravitational deformation create surface landforms that, if trenched and dated, yield critical data on slope kinematics. The northern slope of Pic d'Encampadana descends steeply 800¿m down into the glaciated Valira d'Orient of Andorra and has long been known for its numerous antislope scarps (sackungen), indicative of deep-seated gravitational slope deformation (DSGSD). We excavated three trenches across antislope scarps and their adjacent troughs to date the defor...
