When the seabed loses its stability and starts to move, it often happens in much larger dimensions than landslides ashore -- and at slopes with very low gradients.

Marine scientists have now published possible causes based on observations on submarine landslides off the coast of northwest Africa. Latest Science News -- ScienceDaily
