Abstract

From the viewpoint of hazard assessment the magnitude-frequency characteristics is an essential element of the debris-flow process. For this study, published data specifying both magnitude and frequency were used for the Alps, the Tatra Mountains, Scotland, Norway, and Swedish Lapland in addition to material for the French Alps. Activity levels within Northwest European mountains were found to be lower than in the Alps or the Tatras. Possible explanations are discussed, in which precipitation patterns and debris availability play a prominent part
