This proceedings, Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation: Mechanics, Prediction, and Assessment, contains papers presented at the First International Conference held in San Francisco, California, August 7-9, 1997. The papers covered a variety of topics ranging from debris-flow mechanics to debris-flow hazards prediction and assessment. In addition to the peer-reviewed papers, this volume includes two invited papers. One presents an overview on the geoscience and geotechnical engineering aspects of debris flow while the other provides an overview of hydroscience and hydrotechnical engineering aspects.
