Submarine slides varying from 0.002km3 to more than 360km3 have been identified in the Faroe - Shetland Channel using a wide range of surveys. Although not a major constraint to seabed use slides need to be considered as a potential geohazard. Dynamic loading of contouritic horizons is considered the triggering mechanism of these thin layer failures.
