Abstract

In order to assess the fan morphodynamics and the slope evolution in the temporal range 1955-1996, multi-year air-photo interpretation and field surveys concerning morphodynamic processes and vegetation cover features were carried out in the Mucone River basin. Field observations allowed discriminating the type of fan deposits (debris-flow or water-flow dominated, mixed deposits) and the successional stages of vegetation. Results showed that fans were concerned by different activity and dissection modality, in addition to diverse evolution patterns in vegetation communities, according to the fan aspect. Changes in land use played a major role
