Between mass wasting and mass movements, which term do you feel is most appropriate? Why? Can solifluction be included under rapid flow movements? Why it can be and can’t be?

Mass wasting is the removal of rock debris or the material of earth under the gravity.

Mass wasting suits better than mass movement as this leads to removal of large amount of earth’s crust and also wastage of valuable rock/minerals over a surface. The mass movements also create large destruction over the place they occur. Hence the word wasting is appropriate.

Solidification occurs when the upper portion gets water saturated and material starts flowing in tongue shaped. This is a slow movement.
