Morphology of debris flow deposits from a 1967 event in Caraguatatuba, Serra do Mar, Brazil, The
Morphological characteristics of debris-flow deposits are a fundamental part of the field study of the process. The deposits show aspects related to flow dynamics, which reflects its main mechanics and enables the correct identification of process. Occurrences of debris flows are quite common in Brazil, especially in the Serra do Mar region, located at the southern/southeastern coast of the country. Geological and geomorphological characteristics and high rainfall indexes contribute to high susceptibility of the process in the region. In one of those occurrences, in the summer of 1967, the city ...
