  Abstract:  

The deep-seated landslides (glimee) have played an important role in the evolution of the Transylvanian landscape, causing the reshaping of the slopes. Previous research indicates that the triggering moment of this landslide began during the Late Glacial Period or even in the Eemian Period. Although contemporary geomorphologic processes affect the body of the landslides, it remains a specific element of the landscape in Transylvanian Basin. In our study we performed a statistical analysis, regarding some factors like spatial distribution, the altitude of the scarp, the regional morphologic units, lithology and slope exposure. Our attempt is to emphasize the relations between the deep-seated landslides and the adjoining territory.

Keywords: Deep-seated landslide, glimee, Transylvanian Basin.
