wind;ex: sand dunes on the desert and beach are deposition by wind
Ice;ex: glaciers push debris as they slide causing it to build up
Landslides are mass movement of land due to gravity.
Effects of landslides
buildings fall
power lines break
gas lines break
Cause of landslides
even occur on the continental slope in the ocean
