Debris flow is an important sedimenttransport mechanism in subaerial and subaqueous environments. Its properties change almost continuously as sediment and water are added to or subtracted from it (Smith and Lowe, 1991; Vallance, 2000). In subaerial environments, debris flows are commonly diluted into hyperconcentrated flows when they encounter a streamflow (Pierson and Costa, 1987; Costa, 1988). A transition facies is produced during these events, comprising both debris-flow and… CONTINUE READING
