Thanks to our UK listener Valeria for this excellent question! 

Valeria wondered what was going on with road collapses in the UK recently!  Luckily, some experts have looked into this and wrote this recent blog post that proposes some ideas, and suggests further research is necessary.  

In this Geoshort, we discuss these options, as well as explain what Solifluction is, and how it moves soil in a very powerful and slow process. 
Thanks Valeria for an excellent question!  We look forward to many more from you and other listeners of PlanetGeo.
