Abstract

The origins and effects of catastrophic high floods in small drainage basins of the Alps are discussed. A great part of the eroded material from the headwater regions is deposited in the lower parts of the basin. The sources of the sediments are the eroded steep slopes and especially small channels which drain catchment areas under a dense vegetation cover. The main effect of catastrophic high floods is a high rate of lateral and vertical erosion in the river bed which in this region has not been corrected by engineering modification of the channel
