An integrated geomorphological survey involving detailed geomorphological field mapping and associated desk studies is a powerful tool in identifying the locations and nature of slope instability within built-up areas. When supplemented with existing or specifically designed ground investigation, initial instability processes and mechanism models can be re-evaluated and refined. This paper provides an example of a geomorphological survey at Yarm, County Cleveland, which aimed to delineate unstable areas and address the potential causes of ground movements within a residential area.

Land Surface Evaluation for Engineering Practice
This volume presents a collection of papers on techniques and case studies in land surface evaluation for engineering practice written by specialist practitioners in the field. The volume arose out of deliberations by the Second Working Party on Land Surface Evaluation set up by the Engineering Group of the Geological Society in January 1997 and chaired by Dr. J. S. Griffiths. The book examples of cost-effective methods for collecting land surface and near surface data prior to carrying further detailed ground investigations of engineering geologist, geotechnical engineers, geomorphologist and planners who have the responsibility for planning a designing investigations of potential sites of development.
