Abstract

This paper assesses the flood's immediate geomorphic impact as well as its longer term geomorphic significance in terms of slope and valley-floor development. The hydrometeorological characteristics of the flood are reconstructed and placed in the context of the catchment's flood history. In magnitude frequency terms, the dominant geomorphic processes in this environment are floods which occur several times a century
