Description :
Mass transfers triggered by a rare rainfall event on 20-21 July, 2004, in the Latnjavagge catchment in the higher Abisko mountain region, are quantified and analysed in direct comparison with mean annual mass transfers in this drainage basin. A reliable estimation of the recurrence intervals of such rare events is especially problematic. The general problem of defining an adequate length of process monitoring programmes is pointed out.
