The Rainfall Intensity: Duration Control of Shallow Landslides and Debris Flows
Preview not available

Abstract

Published records of the rainfall intensities and durations associated with shallow landsliding and debris flow activity suggests a limiting threshold for this type of slope instability. The limit has the general form: I = 14.82 D-0.39 and is best defined for rainfall durations between 10 minutes and 10 days.
