Estimation of the magnitude of debris-flows

New approach of field assessment of the magnitude/frequency relations on the basis of the analysis of environmental factors and triggering mechanisms:

The result is a new geomorphological approach dedicated to the assessment of magnitude/frequency relation for debris-flows and of characterization of the main features (essentially) of catastrophic events of debris-flows.

The estimation of the magnitude of debris-flows is of paramount importance because it is the input to any other possible computation of the characteristics of the potential flow. The expected benefit is a better estimation of these input data leading in fine to better hazard assessment.
