          That is what they get for not social distancing!

          The consistency of the soil looks like a sand bar, at least from where it was filmed.

              That is the 2020 version of owning an island.

                      Just got back in from fishing all day in the gulf and saw it on the tv news and thought... I’ve got an alibi.

                        Alta: a truly remarkable video of a quick clay landslide in Norway


                        One of the top ten landslide videos of all time was captured yesterday at Kråknes in Alta, in the north of Norway. This video shows what is almost certain to be a quick clay landslide. It occurred in the morning of Wednesday 3 June 2020; the video has been posted to Youtube. If this video ceases working then it can also be viewed here.

                        VG.no has an article (in Norwegian) that explains the context of the video. It was collected by the owner of one of the houses, Jan Egil Bakkeby. He notes that they saw a tension crack downslope from their cabin on Tuesday evening, but chose to stay overnight. It rained on Wednesday morning, after which the landslide occurred. He fled from the house and climbed the hill, and then shot the video.

                        Quick clays are glaciomarine materials that have strange properties. When disturbed they are very weak – indeed their behaviour is similar to that of a fluid. But undisturbed they are much stronger, primarily because of the role of salt, which glues the particle structure together. When this structure is disturbed, the quick clay rapidly weakens, allowing these spectacular landslides to form.

                        I have featured a number of other quick clay landslides over the years, including examples from Sweden, Norway and Canada, and a similar type of landslide from Brazil. The most famous example is the Rissa landslide, also in Norway, for which another excellent video is available.
