Abstract

The AA. present a case study of a debris-flood fan covered with coniferous and broadleaved tree species affected by past torrential activity in a pre-alpine catchment with limited sediment supply. The reconstruction is based on the sampling of 148 trees on the fan of the Torrent de la Greffe, Valais, Switzerland. Through the analysis of the trees sampled and their spatial distribution on the fan surface they analyse the debris-flood frequency of the torrent and the spatial imprint of past events
