debris flows projects


small drum experiments

We observed grain dynamics and bedrock erosion from simple granular flows in the small rotating drum, nicknamed the “Maytag”.

large drum experiments

In the 4-meter diameter rotating drum at the Richmond Field Station, we are measuring bedrock erosion and bed stresses caused by field-scale sediment. [FAQ]

field measurements

We are monitoring erosion marks on marble and granite stone slabs placed in the Illgraben Torrent, Switzerland. Since July 2006, several debris flows have passed over the stones, causing grooves, scratches, and impact marks.
