Drawdown landslides in muddy sediments at the Condit Dam

Dr. Dave has a nice post about rapid drawdown slope failures and he ties it in to a neat video (below) of the removal of the Condit Dam in Washington state. The video shows some time lapse photography of the water receding, and pulses of slope failures occurring after the dam was disabled using explosives. The full dam removal will follow.
