A 5-year investigation revealed that ground retreat from unvegetated slopes (8·7 mm p.a.) exceeded that from vegetated slopes (2·5 mm p.a.). Similarly, the retreat of the vegetated slope which faced south-west (3·7 mm p.a.) exceeded that from the vegetated slope which faced north-east (1·3 mm p.a.). Maximum retreat scores were recorded on the lower part of the upper convexity and the lower main slope on vegetated slopes and from the mid-slope on the unvegetated slope.
