Abstract

Data from a set of 209 alluvial fans from the central Alps of Italy are presented in this paper and analysed with the help of various statistical techniques (linear regression, principal components analysis, cluster analysis, discriminant analysis and logistic regression). First, they used modern sedimentary facies and historical records (flood events since 15th century), to distinguish between the 2 dominant sedimentary processes on alluvial fans : debris flows and streamflows. Then, in order to analyse the main controls on past and present fan processes, 36 morphological, geological and land-use variables were analysed
