A geomorphological analysis of the Veatch slide complex is presented here indicting the presence of at least two major slides presenting different morphological characteristics and involving different type of sediments (in terms of strength and grain size). These slides took place after the erosion of the Veatch Canyon which had been the locus of many bank failures. It is shown that a more refined morphological analysis of similar landslide areas may lead to the definition of a greater number of slides and a greater role of channels both leading to a more complex interpretation on their mobility.
