Overview of a decade of applied debris-flow runout modeling in Switzerland, An : challenges and recommendations
Dynamic debris-flow runout models are applied by practitioners (1) to generate hazard maps, (2) to help design mitigation measures such as dams and warning systems, (3) to explore potential impacts of rare events such as pro-glacial lake failure, and (4) to illustrate the hazard process to local decision makers and stakeholders. Automated observations of debris flows in several torrents have shown a large degree of variability in the flow process, ranging from fast muddy debris floods to relatively slow debris flows with granular fronts, at any given torrent. It is not yet possible to predict ...
