Vibrational characteristics of debris flow in Taiwan, The
Debris flows have become a common disaster in Taiwan in recent years since the impacts of extreme weathers has been aggravated. To protect people from the debris-flow disasters, a monitoring and warning system was developed by Soil and Water Conservation Bureau (SWCB) in Taiwan. The rainfall-based criteria are used in Taiwan for debris flow warning. Different to rainfall measurement, the ground surface vibrational signal from a debris flow has been studied more widely in recent years. Sensors of geophone (short period seismograph) and broadband seismograph are commonly used for debris flow ...
