Abstract

This paper presents preliminary results from a study, based on 34 debris flow basins in the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, in which the AA. use both morphometric and geotechnical variables to characterize the intensity of the supply processes feeding the debris flow system. They then explore correlations between these parameters and debris flow activity and discuss the possibilities of predicting debris flow volumes from peak discharge data. The method is applicable to small basins in which no frequency or magnitude records are available
