When soil is stressed, it can liquefy, losing its stability and strength. The stress can be caused by extreme force such as an earthquake, or the introduction of too much water to the ground. The resulting soil liquefaction can occur, destabilizing the ground. Different types of soils react differently to stress, for example, soil that is mostly sand can liquefy faster than clay soils.
