If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr C. P. Caulfield.

Motivated by rock/soil slides in Nature, I will describe some simple experiments to examine the final profile of released static columns of granular materials. A simple-minded theoretical model will be presented which captures some aspects of the process but inevitably leaves many questions unanswered.

This talk is part of the Seminars for the Centre for Environmental and Industrial Flows series.
