Abstract

On August 7th, 1996, an intense and short-duration convective storm occurred over the Arás drainage basin. This storm resulted in high runoff, causing catastrophic damage and significant geomorphic changes in the drainage basin, especially in the Betés subbasin. Two stages in the development of the flood have been differentiated from the sedimentological and morphological analysis of the flooded fan lobe : peak discharge and discharge decline
