Abstract

The aims of this investigation are to 1) provide a detailed account of an upland slide/debris flow, assessing coupling between the hillslope and the downstream channel and 2) consider the run-out dynamics and efficiency of sediment transmission to the main river (River Caldew). In the region enclosing this study, the River Caldew is one of 138 English rivers identified as at risk, and in 35% of cases this is due to sediment delivery. In all cases this risk status is determined without consideration of the role of mass movement supplied sediments, which could exacerbate catchment conditions further
