Abstract

The catchment of the River Partnach, a torrent situated in a glacial valley in the Northern Calcareous Alps of Bavaria, Germany, was affected by a high-magnitude flood on 22/23 August 2005. The flood was caused by a long period of intense rainfall. During this event, a landslide dam, which previously held a small lake, failed. Using terrestrial survey and aerial photography, erosional and depositional consequences of the event were mapped, pre- and post-event surfaces were compared and the sediment budget of the event calculated for 10 consecutive channel reaches downstream of the former lake
