6) (Iverson, 1997; Scotton and Deganutti, 1997), three-phase mixtures of water, sediment and air, responsible for the formation of alluvial fans. This impulsive phenomenon shows very different properties, depending on the geometric characteristics of the solid material and the type of triggering rainfalls. 6 Schematic representation of a debris flow surge. This aspect is assumed when the mixture is rich in coarse and poor in fine material of bottom erosion and deposition. They are normally generated in very small basins, whose dimensions are of the order of magnitude of some square kilometres, although they can exhibit a high bulk density (roughly twice the water density), a high velocity (up to 10–20 m s−1 ) and very large discharges (some hundreds of cubic metres per second).

Furse, M. T. and Armitage, P. , 1993. European Water Pollution Control, 3(4), 15–25. 1 INTRODUCTION Until a few years ago, studies on water courses were performed, from the engineering point of view, in a way almost completely independent of all aspects relevant to water biology. At the same time, relations between engineers and biologists were somewhat occasional, both because of substantially different languages and a different way to face and solve problems. The present unavoidable necessity to evaluate environmental impacts of civil engineering works is producing, as a consequence, a tendency to a deeper reciprocal attention.
