slope processes The set of geomorphological processes that act on and below the surface of a hillslope, affecting the regolith and bedrock. Some of the most important are rainwash, sheetwash, weathering, mass movement, piping, and linear erosion by rill and gully activity. Each process tends to be associated with a distinctive slope profile.
