ty"The video clip shows the cliff where the fall initiated, near the ledge close to the skyline.  Then, below the ledge, you can see the talus cone, which are rocky bits along the slope. The really large boulders that fell down and ruined the house have carved out soil ruts as the boulders rolled downhill." http://geographyeducation.org/2014/01/30/gravity/

Giovanni Sonego's curator insight, January 31, 2014 7:18 AM

Una decina di giorni fa, il 21 gennaio 2014, è franato un torrione di roccia posto sopra un'abitazione a Termeno (Tramin), in Alto Adige.

 

Devastati campi, attrezzature, vigneti - a Tramin si produce i famoso Traminer - e tanta paura per la famiglia del sig. Herbert Trebo che ha visto uno dei massi fermarsi a pochi metri dalla casa. 

 

Qui trovate un filmato che riprende dall'alto la zona, evidenziando la zona del distacco e gli effetti devastanti dei massi rotolati e del terreno franato.

Gravity-induced erosion in action.

There are some things that just cannot be avoided like this rock that gouged its way down a hill, destroying part of a home and the landscape. Will we ever be in time to predict their coming and avoid such disasters from happening?
