Answer

Correct Option is Soil Flow

When the soil is completely saturated with water the individual particles are almost suspended in the water and move easily over one another and over the underlying rock. The soil acts like a liquid and a soil-flow occurs. In areas of peat soils, the peat absorbs much moisture. However if saturation point is reached the peaty soil may flow down-slope. In Ireland such flows are known as bog-bursts.
