I have a site with very soft marine soil deposits (mainly silts) overlying and inclined bedrock. Soils just underneath the former seabed are normally consolidated, and soils on top of the bedrock are slightly overconsolidated (OCR=1.4). The thickest layer for these marine soil deposits is about 40 m. The site was land reclaimed. How can I check if soil creep is occuring/can occur? Soil creep is not "fully" understood, so if you also have good references to share with me, it will be appreciated.
