The relative geomorphic work effected by four processes in rainstorms: a conceptual approach to magnitude and frequency

Experimental geomorphology and landscape ecosystem changes (proceedings memorial symposium Prof. Jan De Ploey)

Auteurs :
GALLART, F.
POESEN, J.

Description :
This paper first proposes a probabilistic approach of the relationship between rainfall amounts and degree of landsliding (Gallart, 1990) and then to apply it to a modification of the quantitative magnitude-frequency approach suggested by Wolman and Miller (1960), extended it to the four main groups of geomorphic processes: chemical denudation, creep, water erosion and rainfall triggered landsliding, at the hillslope scale.
