The papers in this special issue represent recent advances in understanding debris flows that initiate by surface runoff and increase in volume through entrainment of sediment : 5 papers focus on debris flows in areas burned by wildfire, and 3 papers focus on debris flows in unburned areas. They are organized into 4 groups and are presented in the following order : 1) initiation studies, 2) entrainment and volumetric studies, 3) predictive methods, and 4) mitigation issues
