The passive NW-African continental margin is characterized by several very large but infrequent
landslides. Most of these landslides occurred during periods of low or rising sea level.
Hence, the probability of future large-scale slope failures during the current sea level high
stand is generally considered to be low. This interpretation is challenged by new observations
during a recent research cruise to the Sahara Slide.
