The Seismic Signature of Debris Flows: Flow Mechanics and Early Warning at Montecito, California »

1pm 30 April 2020

Debris flows are concentrated slurries of water and sediment that shape the landscape and pose a major hazard to human life and infrastructure. Seismic ground motion-based observations promise to provide new, remote constraints on debris flow physics, but the lack of data and a theoretical basis for interpreting them h
