The proposed method was applied to an actual landslide-induced debris flow that occurred on June 13, 1995 in a high-altitude mountainous region of southwestern China. The method depends on field measurements of channel dimensions and some empirical equations for debris flow dynamics. Maximum discharge is one of the most important characteristics of debris flows, because it can be used for assessing the hazard potential of debris flows and for developing preventive measures to reduce the dynamic impacts of debris flows
