Abstract

Four debris flows on North Fork Mountain were selected for detailed study : Austin Run and Kisamore Run from the 1949 storm and Twin Run and Gravel Lick Run from the 1985 storm. Based on the distribution of deposits and eroded surfaces, up to four zones were identified with each debris flow : an upper failure zone, a middle transport/erosion zone, a lower deposition zone, and a sediment-laden floodwater zone immediately downstream from the debris-flow terminus. Geomorphic effects of the debris flows in these zones are spatially variable
