Abstract

The model couples field studies of debris-flow rheology with simple calculations in order to illustrate, in a general manner, the controls on the patterns of debris-flow deposition on fans. The predictions are insensitive to the form of rheological model (results for Bingham and Newtonian models are presented). The nature of the flow hydrograph, on the other hand, is shown to be of first order importance. Unfortunately, in many geological environments, little is known about the physical controls on the temporal variation in discharge and sediment concentration characteristic of debris-flow hydrographs. -from Author
