True False 44. Removal of large thicknesses of overburden material causes expansion of earth materials, which can lead to decreases in strength. True False 45. The orientation of rock layering within a hill can either enhance or hinder the chances of slope failure. True False 46. The geological condition known as daylighted bedding exists where the ends of shallow-dipping rock layers are exposed to daylight on a steeper slope. This condition produces a strengthened condition of the rock layers that is not favorable for failure. True False 47. The main types of mass movement are downward, as in falling or subsiding, or downward and outward, as in sliding and flowing. True False 48. A translational slide may move as long as it sits on the downward-inclined surface and its driving mass still exists whereas rotational slides move only short distances. True False 49. The amount of water in pore spaces has no effect on mass movements of earth materials. True False 50. The floor of the Pacific Ocean around the Hawaiian Islands is covered with submarine slumps and debris avalanches over an area that is several times the area of the islands themselves. True False

51. Basal failure surfaces for landslides typically are either curved in a concave-upward sense or nearly planar. True False 52. Flank collapses on volcanic islands can cause tsunami. True False 53. Land subsidence is worsened by the cessation of groundwater pumping, because the additional water that is retained underground weakens the rock, making it subside more easily. True False 54. Carbonic acid is produced by the chemical precipitation of limestone. True False

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
