Record #175701:

400 years of debris-flow activity and triggering weather conditions: Ritigraben, Valais, Switzerland / M. Stoffel, and 6 others.

Title: 400 years of debris-flow activity and triggering weather conditions: Ritigraben, Valais, Switzerland / M. Stoffel, and 6 others.
Author(s): Stoffel, M.
Date: 2005.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2005.), Vol. 37(3) (2005)
Abstract: Studies frequency of debris flows originating from periglacial environments in historical context, using dendrogeomorphological methods to reconstruct 53 events going back to 1605. Finds debris flows to have occurred even more frequently in nineteenth century than at present and that apparently above-average concentration of events since 1987 is caused by insufficient and short archival data.
