Abstract
A debris flow is an erosional process that frequently occurs in areas with steep slopes. Although the initiation can be triggered in higher and inhabited altitudes, the propagation and then the deposition can endanger urbanized areas. Frequently, the zones of generation of debris flows are placed in unattainable territories complicating field observations. Moreover, the rapid vegetation's recovery can hide the scars and tracks created by the occurrence of the flow, unlikely to be recognizable in...
