Abstract
The Portainé catchment is situated at the south flank of the Pyrenees and drains a total area of 5.72 km2. Its altitude ranges from 950 m to 2439 m asl and the Melton ratio is 0.62. Bedrock consists of folded and largely fractured Cambro-Ordovician metapelite, sandstone and greywackes and is covered by colluvium. A ski resort is located in the upper part of the catchment and the access roads cross the drainage network at various points. Since 2006, ten important torrential processes (debris flo...
