Abstract

Morphometric variables associated with 36 debris torrent, 78 snow avalanche, 45 composite debris torrent and snow avalanche and 14 streamflow basins in the Cascade Mountains of southwestern British Columbia, Canada are examined. The results show significant statistical differences in top and bottom elevations, relief, channel length and gradient, basin area, fan gradient and area, and basin ruggedness between snow avalanche basins and the 2 basin types affected by debris torrents, reflecting the very different nature of these processes. The AA. explore the usefulness of selected morphometric characteristics for preliminary identification of debris torrent hazard
