Abstract

Hilly upland landscapes are cloaked in a thin layer of soil derived primarily from the underlying parent material and transported by diverse processes. Creep subsumes soil transport processes assumed to be linearly proportional to slope and the authors examined a range of studies that have attempted to quantify these processes. This chapter thus provides a short overview of the conceptual framework, as well as some of the field-based methods, used in these studies. Colluvial soil is also termed regolith and although creep sensu stricto may occur across a wide variety of landforms and sediment types, the authors focus on hilly landscapes in this chapter.
