As for the invited papers, the first one presents a synopsis of the catastrophic debris-flow triggered by Hurricane Mitch at Casita volcano in Nicaragua, the second paper addresses debris-flow hazards associated with the collapse of natural dams, while the third paper addresses initiation and flow of various types of debris-flow.

Debris Flow Association is a professional society of scientists and practitioners which seeks to foster and support research of debris flows and other natural hazards, to elaborate methods for assessment and mitigation of impact produced by debris flows and for protection of human population.

The processes of occurrence and deposition are discussed in Debris Flow Forecast and Debris-flow hazards mitigation book Mitigation Measures for Debris Flows. The difference in behavior of debris flows must be the reflection of difference in the dominant stresses among others existing within the flow.

This study was supported by the Research project funded by Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) “Research, Proposal and Application of Science and Technology Measures for Prevention, Mitigation and Control of Debris Flow Risks in the Northern Mountain Region” (Decision No.

/QD-BNN-KHCN dated on 29/10/). The USGS postwildfire debris-flow hazard models have been applied after four fires in New Mexico since the model was developed: the Track and Las Conchas Fires and the Little Bear and Whitewater-Baldy Fires.

These reports were used by land managers to help select and prioritize post-fire flood and debris flow mitigation treatments. Debris Flow Hazards and Related Phenomena is set to become the standard reference on debris flows, debris avalanches and related editors provide a complete treatment of all aspects of debris flow and debris avalanche research whilst making the book a.

With climate change and deforestation, debris flows and debris avalanches have become the most significant landslide hazards in many countries. In recent years there have been numerous debris flow avalanches in Southern Europe, South America and the Indian Subcontinent, resulting in major catastrophes and large loss of life.

This is therefore a major high-profile problem for the world's. These proceedings contain papers presented at the Fourth International Conference on Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation: Mechanics, Prediction, and Assessment held in Chengdu, China, SeptemberThe papers cover a wide range of topics on debris-flow science and engineering, including the factors triggering debris flows, geomorphic effects, mechanics of debris flows (e.g., rheology.

Debris flows and debris avalanches are among the most dangerous and destructive natural hazards that affect humans. They claim hundreds of lives and millions of dollars in property loss every year.

The past two decades have produced much new scientific and engineering understanding of these occurrences and have led to new methods for mitigating. But these hazard assessments often allow very little time for action, as rain often follows closely behind the fires.

So USGS scientists have also been pursuing a way to assess debris flow hazards before the fire occurs. The approach they developed is quick and easy, using statistics for a. The debris flow mitigation measures constructed in the Xiaogangjian Gully effectively resisted a debris flow with a year return period that was triggered by rainfall on J Specifically, these measures effectively protected a highway and minimized debris flow damage.

Debris-flow monitoring devices. Table 1 provides, in the first column, a series of parameters that are relevant for debris-flow investigation and studies. In the second column, the sensors that are commonly employed to measure each parameter are listed.

Because most debris flows are triggered by intense rainfalls, a debris-flow monitoring system should also include one or more rain. Debris Flow Hazard And Mitigation Works In Fiames Slope (Dolomites, Italy) Download.

LORENZINI, University of Bologna, Italy, C.A. Brebbia, Wessex Institute of.The 7th International Conference on Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation will be held June 10 – 13, in Golden, Colorado, USA on the campus of Colorado School of Mines. With the beautiful Rocky Mountains covering half the state, Colorado shares the problem of debris-flow hazards with other mountainous areas of the world.The Association of Geohazard Professionals (AGHP) provides resources and mechanisms to elevate the state of practice and the reach of the geohazard marketplace.

All interested industry participants are invited to join. AGHP has 8 active committees: Anchor Testing, Debris Flow and Steep Creek Hazards Mitigation, Education, Geohazard Monitoring & Instrumentation, Marketing, Post Support Systems.
