Complexity of a debris-flow system at Forest Falls, California

Kerry Cato & Brett Goforth
Historical patterns of debris flows have been reconstructed at the town of Forest Falls in the San Bernardino Mountains using a variety of field methods (mapping flow events after occurrence, dendrochronology evidence, soil chrono sequences). Large flow events occur when summer thunderstorms produce brief high-intensity rainfall to mobilize debris, however the geomorphic system exhibits properties of non-linear response rather than being a single-event precipitation-driven process. Previous studies contrasted the relative water content of flows generated...
