Description:
Abstract:
Depositional fans are formed when sediment moving down a steep channel is deposited where the channel gradient abruptly decreases, for example where a steep valley-wall tributary reaches the valley floor. Sediment can be carried down such a steep channel in flow-type landslides (debris flows, debris floods) or as sediment can be carried by streamflow. Fans are subject to a range of hazards depending which of the preceding processes are active. Debris flows are a style of landslide movement that entail landslide debris moving in a fluid state down a channel, often travelling a long distance from the point of origin. This layer represents fans that are located in alpine areas and are more likely subject to debris flows.
Purpose:
Suitable for general reference and analyses. Identifies only depositional fans that are located in alpine areas and are more likely subject to debris flows along the river corridor within the study limits in King County.
Supplemental_Information:
Research in British Columbia has identified a simple landscape metric that identifies alpine drainage basins that are more likely to produce debris flows (Wilford et al. 2009). This metric is variously known as the Relative Relief Ratio (used here) or the Melton Ratio (see figure below). The ratio increases with the elevation range of the basin and decreases with the square root of the basin area. The ratio will therefore be greatest for small basins that span a large elevation change. Research in British Columbia has shown that basins with a Relative Relief Ratio of 0.6 or more are more likely to produce debris flows, and that fans with a Relative Relief Ratio less than 0.6 are more likely to produce debris floods or normal fluvial flooding (Wilford et al. 2009).
