Formation Conditions of Rainfall-generated Mudflows in Mountain Regions

K. N. Anakhaev, U. I. Makitov, Kh. A. Anakhaev, and A. Kh. Dyshekov

A new method for the assessment of formation conditions of rainfall-generated mudflows is proposed. The method introduces two new criteria: minimum (critical) values of rainfall and meteorological force of rain obtained from the data of observations of rainfalls from 1953 to 2014. This is important for the early warning about the risk of mudflows and for timely taken protection measures in residential areas and other economic objects situated in the zone of the possible negative impact of mudflows.
