Map Showing Inventory and Regional Susceptibility for Holocene Debris Flows, and Related Fast-Moving Landslides in the Conterminous United States; 2000; MF; 2329; Brabb, Earl E.; Colgan, Joseph P.; Best, Timothy C.

Introduction Debris flows, debris avalanches, mud flows and lahars are fast-moving landslides that occur in a wide variety of environments throughout the world.
