Picture of Landslide

A landslide or landslip is a geological phenomenon which includes a wide range of ground movements, such as rockfalls, deep failure of slopes and shallow debris flows, which can occur in offshore, coastal and onshore environments. Although the action of gravity is the primary driving force for a landslide to occur, there are other contributing factors affecting the original slope stability.

Step 1: Causes

Picture of Causes
• groundwater (pore water) pressure acting to destabilize the slope
• erosion of the toe of a slope by rivers or ocean waves
• earthquakes adding loads to barely stable slope
• volcanic eruptions

this is great!!... double plus good!...

I love articles like these that give you answers to questions you've given up trying to define. This is something my kids would ask me, and I genuinely wouldn't know the correct answer to.

Is there a way to activate a landslide with an Arduino?
I'm pretty sure they're native to Picaxe.
Maybe with a Picaxe you could try to locate a BeagleBone, which would trigger the landslide.
