    Clastic rocks are composed of fragments, or clasts, of pre-existing minerals and rock. A clast is a fragment of geological detritus, chunks and smaller grains of rock broken off other rocks by physical weathering. Geologists use the term clastic with reference to sedimentary rocks as well as to particles in sediment transport whether in suspension or as bed load, and in sediment deposits. This book reviews the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) investigations of flood control options for the American River basin and evaluates flood control feasibility studies for the watershed, with attention to the contingency assumptions, hydrologic methods, .

    This paper proposes a simplified GIS-based procedure which aims to preliminary assess areas exposed to debris flows by evaluating erosion and deposition area into channels and along alluvial fans. The methodology is based on the definition of several morphometric parameters on Digital Elevation Models (DEMs); it is independent from landslide volume and its rheological by: 1.

Debris flows and debris avalanches are among the most dangerous and destructive natural hazards that affect humans. They claim hundreds of lives and millions of dollars in property loss every year.

The past two decades have produced much new scientific and engineering understanding of these occurrences and have led to new methods for mitigating.

Analyses of mass and momentum exchange between a debris flow or avalanche and an underlying sediment layer aid interpretations and predictions of bed-sediment entrainment rates. Debris Flows/Avalanches book preliminary analysis assesses the behavior of a Coulomb slide block that entrains bed material as it descends a uniform slope.

The analysis demonstrates that the block's momentum can grow unstably, even in the Cited by: Debris flows are usually triggered by heavy rainfall and/or snowmelt; however, debris flows with large volumes can also transform from landslide dam collapses, avalanches or landslides from slope.

A number of differences are observed in the behavior of the outer (kinematic wave) solutions for laminar and turbulent flow, and it is suggested that it is probably not possible to describe all debris flows and avalanches with laminar flow models.

Debris flows in the Madison area, though less numerous, appear to be larger with longer average run outs.

Subtle differences in the topography probably played a major role. For example in comparing the two areas, the Nelson County area has steeper slopes and is more dissected, but topographic relief is much less.

MITIGATION OF DEBRIS FLOW HAZARDS. Geophysical mass flows—debris flows, avalanches, landslides—can contain O(10 6 –10 10) m 3 or more of material, often a mixture of soil and rocks with a significant quantity of interstitial fluid.
