Lateral spreading is an important geotechnical phenomenon in the Hallstatt zones of the Northern Calcareous Alps where rigid limestones overlie marls and salt clays. Following the last glaciation, mass movements have developed with a general spreading of limestone blocks resulting in a complicated "jigsaw puzzle" of rock. Two typical examples from Mt. Sandling and Mt. Raschberg in the Northern Calcareous Alps of Austria are discussed. © Springer-Verlag 2004.
