The faults and fractures visible at the surface of the glacier go deep within the ice, some even originate at the bed. Dr Emrys Phillips describes how the interpretation of this structure gives us clues to how the dynamics of the glacier are changing.
The British Geological Survey is the definitive source of landslide information in Great Britain. Landslides are shown on our geological maps and we maintain the National Landslide Database which has over 15 000 records of landslides in Great Britain. Information is gathered from surveys and reports or as part of our responsive work in Great Britain.
