Rock-fall hazards (PI-69)
By: W. F. Case Rock falls are a natural process of cliff and hillside erosion. They consist of large rock fragments from a cliff, or boulders from a slope that bounce, roll, and slide down a hillside and come to...
An evaluation of the travel distance potential of debris flows (MP 89-2)
By: S. H. Cannon Debris flows are characteristically able to travel long distances over gentle slopes, and they often damage whatever may be in their path. A weakness in current debris-flow hazard assessments is in the lack of information available...
Guidelines for the geologic evaluation of debris-flow hazards on alluvial fans in Utah (MP 05-6)
By: R. E. Giraud The Utah Geological Survey (UGS) developed these guidelines to help geologists evaluate debris-flow hazards on alluvial fans to ensure safe development. Debris-flow hazard evaluations are particularly important because alluvial fans are the primary sites of debris-flow...
