Auteurs :

Description :
Several rainstorms with strong erosional effects have been recorded in Scandinavia during recent decades. The erosion occurs by the release of rapid mass movements on mountain slopes or through fluvial incision and bank collapse along streams and rivers. Various factors, such as terrain characteristics and seasonal timing of the rainstorm event, are thought to favour the predominance of either of the 2 types of erosion for particular events. A new example of this variable impact of rainstorms is briefly described, and related research issues are outlined.
