Q&A: What factors lead to a mudslide?

The picturesque towns and communities in British Columbia’s lower mainland were plunged into chaos this week when parts of Canada’s landscape suddenly changed due to catastrophic flooding, mudslides, and landslides. Queen’s researcher Andy Take, professor and researcher in Geotechnical Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering, and second-year Master’s student Lisa Tauskela spend their days in the Queen’s Coastal Engineering Lab triggering debris flows, which are commonly called mudslides. Here is a closer look at their research.

What is the difference between a landslide and a mudslide?

What makes a debris flow (mudslide) different from a regular landslide is that liquefaction is occurring in the material. This means the material is saturated with water and due to internal water pressure, the soil grains have lost their friction. Therefore, a previously solid material can now flow like a liquid.

What causes a mudslide?

Excess rain can lead to liquefaction and debris flows as it introduces the requisite water. Debris flows can also be triggered during earthquake, and often occur in mountainous or sloping terrain around the world. Mudslides often travel farther and faster than landslides where liquefaction is not present. This can lead to increased devastation. The United States Geological Survey says debris flows can travel up to and exceeding 55 km/h.

What kind of damage can they cause?

Extremely large debris flows can travel kilometers at high speeds and devastate entire communities. The damage is dependent on the type of landslide that occurs. A 2006 slide in Oso, Washington travelled 100 metres. In 2014, the same slope failed, liquefied the valley floor, and travelled over a kilometre and killed 43 people.

How can you simulate a mudslide in the Coastal Engineering lab?

The objective of the research is to increase the fundamental understanding of liquefaction mechanisms as they affect debris flow mobility. We create landslides of up to 3,000 kg of debris in the Queen’s University flume. This facility consists of a release box located at the crest of an 8-metre-long, 30-degree slope and a 36-metre long horizontal runout zone. (Master's student) Lisa Tauskela varies the water content and volume of the material and captures the landslides with a variety of sensors and cameras. These observations are intended to provide a comprehensive database of landslide behavior to test the ability of newly-developed numerical models. Numerical models that can estimate the likelihood and size of a debris flow are extremely useful for issuing evacuation orders or warnings. Improving the accuracy of these lifesaving models is the subject of research around the world.

How can we prevent them from happening?

We can either stop a debris flow from happening in the first place or we can reduce its impact on nearby people and infrastructure. Debris flows are more likely to occur when excess water is present, whether this is from rainfall, overland flow, or damaged culverts, water pipes etc. Debris flows also occur when the toe (bottom) of a slope is removed, whether this is from erosion or excavation for construction. To prevent debris flows, we should minimize clear-cutting trees, add more vegetation, monitor erosion, and minimize construction near unstable slopes.

Gaels face Mustangs in 113th Yates Cup

Queen’s Gaels football is playing for the Yates Cup for the first time since the 2013 season this Saturday at Richardson Stadium.

The Gaels are taking on the rival Western Mustangs Saturday at 1 p.m. at Richardson Stadium in the 113th Yates Cup.

Queen’s last played for a Yates Cup eight years ago, a 51-22 loss to the Mustangs in London. The last time Queen’s hosted a Yates Cup was in 2009, a 43-39 win over the Mustangs on their way to capturing the Vanier Cup.

“That game was an absolute classic and maybe regarded by many as one of the greatest games ever played in our sport,” says Gaels head coach Steve Snyder. “Our team has watched that game in the past, that was a part of our process through the pandemic, and what a tremendous atmosphere.

“Residents of Kingston still talk about it. We’re looking forward to a great atmosphere this weekend at the best venue, Richardson Stadium. A place that is just oozing with the spirit of Canadian university football. I certainly hope our community and Kingston residents, the student body, and our alumni turn out to enjoy a great sporting event, and I think they will.”

The Gaels will enter the Yates Cup as OUA East Division champions. After finishing the regular season with an undefeated 6-0 record, Queen’s defeated the Carleton Ravens in the OUA East Division semifinals and the Ottawa Gee-Gees in the OUA East Division Final to advance to the Yates Cup.

The Gaels and the Mustangs finished at or near the top in several statistical categories in the OUA this season. The Gaels were the second ranked scoring offence in the OUA, averaging 28.7 points per game, behind only the Mustangs’ 44.3 points per game. The Gaels had the stingiest defence in the league, averaging just 7.3 points against per game, ahead of the Mustangs, who finished second overall averaging 11.5 points against per game.

The teams were also the top two units in total defence, with the Gaels finishing second, giving up 288.0 yards per game while the Mustangs led the league, giving up 271.7 points per game.

Saturday's game will also feature the top two running backs in the OUA this season in the Gaels’ Rasheed Tucker and the Mustangs’ Keon Edwards.

Tucker finished the regular season with 114 carries for 697 yards and eight touchdowns, and has added another 48 carries for 359 yards and four touchdowns in the OUA Playoffs. He has also been named the Canadian Football Perspective OUA Offensive Player of the Week four times this season, twice in the regular season and twice in the playoffs.

Edwards finished the regular season with 120 carries for 837 yards and nine touchdowns. In the Mustangs’ two playoff games so far, he has added 26 carries for 140 yards and three touchdowns.

Tickets for the 113th Yates Cup can be purchased online.

Queen’s signs Scarborough Charter on anti-Black racism and Black inclusion

University joins institutional partners from across Canada in move toward more meaningful and concrete action in confronting racism and championing diversity.

Scarborough Charter official image
An official Scarborough Charter signing ceremony took place at a virtual event on Nov. 18, 2021.

Queen’s has joined 40 universities and colleges across Canada as a signatory of the Scarborough Charter — a sector-wide agreement designed to move post-secondary institutions beyond rhetoric and to more meaningful, concrete actions to address anti-Black racism and to promote Black inclusion. Signed by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane during a virtual ceremony on Nov. 18, 2021, the charter follows through on commitments made by partner institutions at the October 2020 National Dialogues and Action for Inclusive Higher Education and Communities and provides a framework for delivering on these promises.

“Today serves as an important milestone in Queen’s ongoing commitment to create a more inclusive institution. The Scarborough Charter specifically addresses anti-Black racism and, in so doing, recognizes an integral part of our community’s pledge to address all forms of systemic racism and take action to promote equity and inclusivity across our campus,” says Principal Deane. 

The Scarborough Charter is founded on four core principles — Black flourishing, inclusive excellence, mutuality, and accountability. These principles commit partners to addressing systemic barriers, championing equity, diversity, and inclusion, and further realizing the power of universities and colleges have in boosting the economic development of Black communities, while remaining accountable to regular and concerted progress.

Each of the core principles are underpinned by detailed target areas and actions that seek wide-ranging changes and improvements to post-secondary governance, approaches to research, teaching and learning, and community engagement.

“I applaud colleagues across the sector and here at Queen’s who led and participated in the National Dialogues for this remarkable achievement,” says Stephanie Simpson, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Rights, Equity, and Inclusivity). “Much has happened at Queen’s over the last five years to move us toward greater recognition of the contributions of Black students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members, as well as the challenges we face. The charter affirms our institution’s commitment to support and nurture Black intellectual life, to Black thriving in its many forms, and to our collective responsibility for ensuring Black inclusion throughout our structure, policies and practices.”

The development of the Scarborough Charter follows a year of collaboration and consultation led by the University of Toronto (Scarborough) and involving Queen’s and other institutional partners, as well as Black political and civic leaders and organizations.

Queen’s recognizes Raymond Mason with honorary degree

Indigenous community leader and residential school survivor recognized for contributions to Truth and Reconciliation in Canada — one of several Doctorates of Law awarded during 2021 Fall Term.

In October 2021, Queen’s University bestowed distinguished community leader, activist, entrepreneur, and residential school survivor, Raymond Mason, with an honorary Doctor of Laws (LLD) — in recognition of his significant contributions to truth and reconciliation, to Indigenous peoples and communities, and to Canadian society at large.

Born in Peguis First Nation in 1946, Mason was one of over 150,000 Indigenous children taken from their homes and sent to residential schools, where he would witness and endure abuses that would shape the trajectory of his life for decades afterward. 

Despite the hardships of his youth, Mason persevered, graduating from the University of Manitoba’s commerce program, and going on to lead several successful business ventures. He would eventually create Spirt Wind Inc., an organization that mobilized residential and day school survivors into action and successfully pushed for an official government apology and the Residential School Settlement Agreement. 

His leadership of the group would bring him to testify before Parliament on behalf of survivors, and his involvement in major class actions resulted in 2006’s Indian Residential School Agreement. Collectively, these efforts would spur the establishment of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) Commission — an initiative chaired by Queen’s current Chancellor, The Honourable Murray Sinclair. 

“My warmest congratulations to Mr. Mason on this honour which recognizes his extraordinary courage in overcoming his own challenges as a residential school survivor but, more importantly, for leading the movement to seek redress for other residential school survivors across the country,” says Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane. 

Mason expressed feelings of humility in being recognized with an honorary degree and went on to share his deep gratitude for his family, friends, colleagues, and others who worked tirelessly alongside him to push for positive change.

“No matter how big the task is, you must have a strong desire and a strong will to succeed. Work hard and never give up, and you will achieve your goals,” he remarked during the virtual ceremony. “I will never rest in peace until I finish my journey and [Indigenous] people receive their justice.”

Present for the virtual ceremony were Elder Doreen McPherson, Chief Glenn Hudson, and councilors of the Peguis First Nation. Also in attendance were Queen’s Elder-in-Residence Deb St. Amant — who was one of Mason’s nominators for the honour — and members of Queen’s Faculty of Education, where Mason has served as a guest lecturer. 

Mason is one of several individuals who will be bestowed with LLDs during the Fall 2021 term. A special in-person ceremony for recipients is set to take place at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts on Nov. 17.

Host Gaels win women’s national rugby title

The Queen's Gaels celebrate with the Molinex Trophy and the championship banner after winning the U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship final on Sunday on home turf at Nixon Field.

The Queen’s Gaels capped off a successful hosting of the U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship with a gold medal at Nixon Field on Sunday.

The Gaels defeated the Ottawa Gee-Gees 26-18 in the final game to hoist the Molinex Trophy on home turf as national champions.

Supporters of both teams and fans of rugby lined the field despite the inclement weather and were treated to an exciting national title game.

The teams were tied 15-15 at halftime before Jaden Walker scored a try in the 49th minute to give Queen’s a lead they would not relinquish on their way to the eight-point win.

The Gaels’ Sophie de Goede, who was named U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Player of the Year on Friday, finished the game with one try, one convert, and two penalty converts. 

de Goede was also named the tournament MVP after the championship game.

“I’m honestly speechless,” de Goede said. “This is the best week that I’ve ever had. I'm so proud of the way that our team played. We couldn’t ask for anything else. This whole week, every single game, they’ve been grinding it out. They've been so gritty, so passionate. And I really feel like we’ve been a family this whole time.”

For Queen’s, Sunday's championship win was redemption after finishing second at the 2019 U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship and a great way to cap off a two-year journey after the 2020 season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It says something about the group of women that I get the chance to work with, when we put something like this at the top of our bulletin board two years ago, going and competing in and winning a national championship on our home pitch,” said Gaels head coach Dan Valley. “To see that come to fruition is an unbelievable feeling. I couldn’t be more proud of our athletes, our coaching staff, our support staff. It was a team effort every single day to get here.”

The U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship brought together the eight best teams from across the country. It marked the first national event hosted by Queen’s since the start of the pandemic.

Queen’s will also host the Canadian University Men’s Rugby Championship from Nov. 24-28. Tournament passes are on sale now.


The Queen’s Gaels are headed to the U SPORTS Women’s Soccer Championship after capturing the OUA title on Saturday with a penalty-kicks win over the Western Mustangs in London after neither team could score in regulation or overtime.

The Gaels will open the tournament on Thursday, Nov. 18 (9:30 a.m.) against MacEwan University in Cape Breton, N.S.


The Queen’s Gaels booked their ticket to the Yates Cup to vie for an OUA title against the Western Mustangs.

On Saturday the Gaels beat the Ottawa Gee-Gees 32-15 at Richardson Stadium, keeping their perfect record intact at 8-0.

The Yates Cup will be played at Richardson Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 1 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online.
