Abstract

This paper examines the role of rockslide-rock avalanches in mountain landscapes, and the landforms associated with them. The diversity of conditions found in individual cases is explored but to help interpret mountain drainage systems interrupted by multiple crossvalley deposits. Such extreme but localized events having geographically extensive consequences are defined in terms of a disturbance regime geomorphology. The transHimalayan Upper Indus Basin provides an example, a large high mountain drainage system fragmented by more than 170 late Quaternary rock avalanches
