Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to report on observations of flow and sediment dynamics in hyperconcentrated flows during 2 extremely high magnitude events in relation with man-made constructions : the Arás flood which occurred in 1996 in the Central Pyrenees, and the Lainbach flood which occurred in 1990 in the Bavarian Alps. No casualties occurred in Lainbach while 86 people died in Arás, during the so-called Biescas campground disaster
