Field experimentation on a steep debris slope. The rate of denudation in terms of rock density was found to be 17.8 mm per thousand years. This rather low figure results from several factors : e.g. good canopy and basal cover of vegetation, cover by rock debris, very little disturbance by man or grazing animals and the lack of available material suitable for transport
