Frontally confined versus frontally emergent MTDs. Black arrows indicate primary translation direction. Purple arrows indicate onlapping relationships. BSS—basal shear surface. a Frontally confined landslide. The arbitrary seismic line across MTD 4 (see Fig. 6 for location). Note how the landslide mass is buttressed against undisturbed strata. b Frontally emergent landslide. Seismic Inline 2352 across MTD 6 (see Fig. 7 for location). Note the runout of the landslide mass beyond the frontal ramp
