Debris flows (Figure ) are composed of coarse material (gravel and boulders) which is embedded in a finer matrix (sand, silt, clay) with varying quantities of water that move as a slurry downslope (Corominas et al. ). Wet soil flows resemble debris flows except that they are composed of a single, fine grain-size (Schrott et al. ).

A torrential rainstorm on September 1, at the recently burned hillslopes of Storm King Mountain, CO, resulted in the generation of debris flows from every burned drainage basin. Maps ( scale) of bedrock and surficial materials and of the debris-flow paths, coupled with a m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of topography, are used to evaluate the processes that generated fire-related.

The Santaquin, Utah, debris flows are one example of wildfire-related debris flows and the associated damages.
