Title: Measurement of soil creep by inclinometer

Description: Abstract - Continued inclinometer measurements at borehole sites installed in 1964 in northern California suggest that previously reported rates of soil creep are excessively high. Upon analysis of 35 access casings located in forested and grassland sites, no consistent direction of soil movement could be detected. In addition, no significant rate of soil creep could be found for the 8 years in which boreholes were measured. The study emphasizes the importance of obtaining intimate contact between the sides of the boreholes and the access casing, if soil creep measurements are to provide useful data
