rock formations in south dakota which are most susceptible to landslides were identified. the majority of landslide activity occurs in the pierre shale. because of the increase in construction in the outcrop area of the pierre, it has received emphasis in this study.

the only factor that appears common to all slopes developed in the pierre shale is the character of the material. The Missouri River area of South Dakota is world renowned for its extensive exposures of the fossiliferous Pierre Shale Group (see Martin et al., this volume, for stratigraphic nomenclature).The Pierre Shale Group is an extensive marine Cretaceous litho-stratigraphic unit that consists of gray to black, organic-rich shales interbedded with bentonites and concretionary zones found through-out.

Bretz and Johnson () reported that the unit is not in southeastern South Dakota, whereas it thickens to 50 m to the central northwest and is absent near Pierre, South Dakota (Dyman et al., ).

Pierre Shale, division of Upper Cretaceous rocks in the United States (the Cretaceous Period lasted from about million to million years ago).

Named for exposures studied near old Fort Pierre, S.D., the Pierre Shale occurs in South Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Pierre consists of about m (about 2, feet) of dark gray shale, some. In South Dakota the Pierre Shale is composed predomi- nantly of clays, largely montmorillonite and mixed layer types [Tourtelot, ], and has generally micron-size : Chris Neuzil.
