Geology
 English term or phrase: that toes out at or below A deep-seated rotational shear is an example of a regressive type instability. A slope displacement ***that toes out at or below*** the bottom of the pit so that the displacement at the toe must be horizontal or upward would also be a regressive geometry. Regressive instability within a material exhibiting peak shear strength may display an initial progressive displacement resulting from the drop in shear strength with displacement.
