Abstract

Morphometric variables associated with 41 debris-flow and 18 fluvial fans and their basins in the Southern Alps of New Zealand are examined. The specific objectives are to test for significant differences between debris-flow and fluvial fans and determine which morphometric variables can best differentiate the fans according to process; to investigate the relations between some morphometric variables at each type of fan; to attempt to explain the results of the morphometric analyses on the basis of the underlying processes; and to explore the usefulness of morphometric thresholds for identification of debris-flow potential on fans
