Hillslope failure and sediment yield in japanese regions with different storm intensity

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper discusses the effects of storm intensity on the magnitudes of slope failure and sediment yields in Japan. Data were analyzed for 813 river basins that experienced storm-induced failure as well as 30 basins with sediment yield data. The basins were grouped into 3 categories according to storm intensity to examine the relation between rainfall and erosion magnitudes. Slope-failure magnitudes and sediment yields are also affected by hillslope inclination. The effect of hillslope inclination is stronger than that of storm intensity
