If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr C. P. Caulfield.

Motivated by rock/soil slides in Nature, I will describe some simple experiments to examine the final profile of released static columns of granular materials. A simple-minded theoretical model will be presented which captures some aspects of the process but inevitably leaves many questions unanswered.
