Installation of a debris flow warning system and comparison of recorded data with other monitoring systems in torrents

A monitoring and warning system has been installed On the Wartschenbach.

Within the setup of this warning system, from the collected experiences, guidelines for the setup of warning systems were developed.

From the recorded data, threshold values were derived for debris flow warning by precipitation.

Because of different recording technology it was not possible to find out a special threshold for the other sensors (geophones).
