Abstract

Alluvial fan deposits in two areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Haywood County were mapped and subdivided into three relative ages (young, intermediate and old) on the basis of topographic position and weathering characteristics. The mapping of fan-surface ages allows an initial assessment of debris-flow hazards, as future floods and debris flows on the mountain piedmonts probably will be confined to the young surfaces
