Abstract
The present study is intended to improve some aspects referring to the general understanding of deep-seated gravitational slope deformations (DSGSD) by the description of field data from the Encampadana slope in Andorra, and using a simplified numerical modelling. The site investigation of the Encampadana DSGSD revealed two major morphologic features: a prominent “graben” close to the summit and counterscarps at different altitudes of the slope. The geological data showed that the slope is ...
