Effects of soil creep on the earth surface include;

  • It can push fence posts and telegraph poles from their original positions so they appear inclined
  • Stone walls built across the slope can be destroyed by the creeping soil
  • Soil creep results in the accumulation of soil particles at the base of the slope
  • Soil creep can also interfere with infrastructure such as road and railways
  • When fine soil particles move downhill the upper slope are left bare and exposed
