Debris Flow

Debris Flow

Detailed Description


This zoomed-in view shows "fresh" light-colored rock and sediments of a fairly recent debris flow. The deposit stands out against darker sediments on an alluvial fan at the base of the Panamint Butte near the Big Four Mine ruins. Debris and avalanche flows frequently come down out of the mountain canyons following large storm events.
