Real-time assessment of debris-flow hazard is fundamental for developing warning systems that can mitigate risk. A convenient method to assess the possible occurrence of a debris flow is to compare measured and forecasted rainfalls to critical rainfall threshold (CRT) curves. Empirical derivation of the CRT from the analysis of past events’ rainfall characteristics is not possible when the database of observed debris flows is poor or when the environment changes with time. For debris flows and… CONTINUE READING
