  • The rainfall climatology of a sample of landslide events in western North Carolina from 1950 to 2004 is presented in 2 parts. First, the two-day concurrent and cumulative antecedent (from 4 to 90 days prior to slope movement) rainfall totals
  • are assessed climatologically by ranking them relative to all heavy precipitation events observed in western North Carolina over a 55-year period. Second, the storm types responsible for the rainfall associated with each landslide event are determined using
  • a manual weather map classification scheme. 47% of the landslide events are connected with concurrent rainfall totals that exceed a one-year return period. In almost half of these cases, the heavy rainfall is associated with a tropical cyclone passing
  • through the region, between 30 and 90 days before the event.

  • Soil degradation in Central Spain due to sheet water erosion by low-intensity rainfall events
  • between runoff and sediment loss, especially when the vegetative cover is greater than 60%. The soil here experiences a chronic loss of 0.02 mm annually as a consequence of frequent, moderate events, in addition to any loss produced by extraordinary events
  • , which, though less frequent, are much more erosive. If moderate events are ignored, an important part of soil loss will be lost in the long run.

  • Analysis of fire events and controlling factors in eastern India using spatial scan and multivariate statistics
  • The aim of this study is to characterize spatio-temporal characteristics of fire events in Orissa state, eastern India. In this study, ATSR satellite remote sensing data have been used to quantify fire events from 1997 to 2006. The spatial scan

  • The 1999 flood of the century in eastern North Carolina : extraordinary hydro-meteorological event or human-induced catastrophe
  • The aim of this study was to assess the degree with which the rainfall and flooding associated with Hurricane Floyd in North Carolina should be viewed simply as an extraordinary natural event, or as one intensified by human modifications of natural

  • Pedologic and geomorphic impacts of a tornado blowdown event in a mixed pine-hardwood forest
  • Two blowdown sites caused by a November 2005 tornado in the Ouachita National Forest, Arkansas, allowed a case study examination of bioturbation associated with a specific forest blowdown event, as well as detailed examination of relationships

  • The paper gives an overall report on historical floods in the Sázava River Basin, focused on the pre-instrumental period in particular. The paper presents the first more detailed chronology of flood events on the Sázava River within the time limits
  • of the years 1515 and 1891. Each individual flood also includes a classification according to time occurrence and, at the end, a discussion on seasonality of all documented events. - (EN)

  • The event-based bedload yields of a small gravel-bed river (the Esconavette Torrent) have been concomitantly determined by surveying coarse sediment deposition in a trap and by monitoring the active layer of the bed and the displacement of painted

  • This paper deals with the glacial history of northern Baffin Island. Its main focus is the glacial bedforms and debris dispersal attributed to the Steensby Inlet flow event, which is interpreted as an ice stream. Antecedent conditions
  • are illustrated based on recent mapping. The evolution of the ice cover, including its thickness, flow patterns, moraine construction, debris dispersal and inferred ice streams, is presented. The Steensby Inlet flow event and inferred ice stream are then discussed

  • A new approach is proposed to simulate splash erosion on local soil surfaces. Without the effect of wind and other raindrops, the impact of free-falling raindrops was considered as an independent event from the stochastic viewpoint. An empirical
  • linear function combining the kinetic energy and soil shear strength was used to estimate the impacted amount of soil particles by a single raindrop. The total splash amount was seen as the sum of the impact amount by all raindrops in the rainfall event
