Abstract

In the course of the heavy thunderstorms in summer 1987, countless debris flows occurred in different areas of the Swiss Alps. This situation provided a unique possibility for investigating several aspects of debris flows which developed under comparable conditions. This paper provides selected results from this case study and discusses some perspectives with respect to possible future climatic warming
