Abstract

In recent years, the number of mudflow- and flood-related accidents has increased. For people living in highland areas and near mountain river beds, mudflows pose a great threat. More exact and reliable prediction requires thorough study of mudflow processes. This article contains analysis of a lithological aspect of mudflow.
