Cryoturbation

Cryoturbation is the mixing of soils due to the alternate freezing and thawing of water.

Solifluction is the slow, downhill movement of near-surface soils caused by the alternate freezing and thawing of contained water.

Ref The HS2 London-West Midlands Environmental Statement, published by the Department for Transport in November 2013.
