Many destructive processes in the mountains give people a lot of trouble, as they are spontaneous. Such processes include talus, avalanches, landslides, mudflows and avalanches.
Under the influence of gravity, rocks that are poorly anchored on a slope can move. This is how debris and landslides are formed. The displacement down the slope of a whole massif of rocks was called a landslide. Landslides are common not only in the mountains, but also on the steep banks of rivers, lakes, and seas. Landslides have been known to have barricaded highways and river valleys or carried away homes.
Mountain slopes are especially dangerous in the spring. As a result of melting snow and glaciers, there is a sharp rise in the water level in mountain rivers. Rapid water streams take with them boulders, boulders of different sizes, mud particles, tree trunks. This fast-moving mass of water, stones and mud is called mudflow. Mudflows move in a solid wall, the height of which can reach 15 m. The reason for the descent of mudflows can be heavy rains, as well as earthquakes and related dam breaks on mountain lakes.
In the spring, avalanches are more frequent in the mountains – huge masses of snow set in motion. The avalanche moves down the slope, carrying with it more and more snow masses. Often it captures fragments of rocks, trunks and branches of trees.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
