The rain wich took place between november 1996 and January 1997 caused a landslide in the surrounding area of the village of Cava, placed in the basin of the river Segre (Catalan Prepyrenees). The litology and structure of the mobilized materials, and the agrarian works and its further abandonement, as well, have been fundamental features causing the aforementioned erosive process. The study of this phenomena has highlighted the existence of two different parts: a rotational movement in a hillside's sector and a mud flow. The analysis of the space-time cause's of these processes, its inter-relation with similar ones, and its influence on the human activities, constitute an essential feature in order to define planification and prevention strategies.
