Soil creep, also known as a soil floor landslides, and all these terms are called as a mass movement of soil due to the gravitational force and external loading.
In simple words, the slow movement of soil along the slope of land it is called soil creep. This occurs due to heavy saturation, which leads to regular expansion and contraction of particles, ultimately leading to soil creep.
Following are the features of creep of soil
- It has shown a slow moment.
- It is due to gravity load.
- Generally, it occurs in less slope area that is low gradient slope.
- Soil creep is a continuous process that requires long duration.
