Shallow landslide leads to mudflow (IMAGE) University of California - Berkeley Caption Aerial photograph of a hillslope after a rainstorm in February 2017 that generated 595 shallow landslides in a 16 square kilometer (6.4 square mile) area in the hills west of Williams, California. In the image, the landscape slopes downward from left to right. The darker brown upslope element of each scar is the landslide, while the lighter toned area downslope records the path the landslide took as it mobilized as mudflow, locally scouring and burying the grass in mud. The scale bar in lower left is 11 meters (36 feet) long.
