    Variants on the landslide theme, not exactly landslides, can be rather poorly sorted-e.g., brecchia due to cave collapse. Apart from things like that, I am not thinking of many options.

    The mud slurry idea has problems with the survival of organisms in it. Fine mud will clog up most organisms, which is part of why putting a dam on a river is such a good way of killing off native river-dwelling mollusks.
