Description :
This report documents modern hillslope erosion and debris flows that occurred on July 21 or 22, 1984, following intense rainfall on the south-facing hillslope of Jake Ridge. Analytical photogrammetric techniques were used to map and measure the volumes of sediment eroded and deposited by these flows. The volumetric results, combined with a hydrologic analysis of the precipitation event that caused the debris flows, help characterize the potential hazards from debris flows and quantify modern hillslope erosion in the Yucca Mountain area.
