Temporal sequence of morphodynamic processes and slope stability, phase 3 and 4.
3. Subsequent to the sliding of the loess layers, erosion of the slide mass starts. In the case that the periglacial layer disappeared completely, bed rock is affected by decomposition under the influence of percolation water.
4. As a result of decomposition along joint and bedding planes, isolated blocks are dissected inside of the sandy regolith. After exceeding a “critical mass” the decomposed sandstone stratum is affected by further slides (Damm and Terhorst, 2009).
