Debris flow video- MUST SEE

If you like watching video of dynamic geologic events, watch this one!

It shows a debris flow in a channel pulsing through the Austrian mountain town of Virgen following heavy rain in late August, 2012, and is incredible. Watch for large floating boulders, carried along on the dense flow of sediment. This is one of the top debris flow videos ever made, on a par with the one made by Kevin Scott of the USGS when he was working in the Jangjia Ravine in China.

The Austrian video comes our way from the Landslide Blog, always worth checking out.

  1. Thank you! I’ve just spent several hours this week planning for this upcoming winter’s landslides in Seattle Parks and it puts our troubles in perspective!
