High pore pressures probably developed locally at the top of the rhythmically bedded siltclay unit, triggering large landslides’’. They added ‘‘although high pore pressures generated by irrigation related groundwater discharge probably triggered most of the historical landslides in the Ashcroft area, the fundamental causes are geological’’. Morgenstern (1986) also concluded that the primary trigger for the movement in these complex slides was related to their retrogressive nature characterised by toeinitiated movements.
