debris flows

Definition note

Debris flows are fast moving, liquefied landslides of mixed and unconsolidated water and debris that look like flowing concrete. Flows can carry material ranging in size from clay to boulders, and may contain a large amount of woody debris such as logs and tree stumps. Flows can be triggered by intense rainfall, glacial melt, or a combination of the two.
