...KENNETH J. HSÜ Abstract Large rockfalls commonly generate fast-moving streams of debris that have been called “sturzstroms.” The geometry of sturzstrom deposits is similar to that of mudflows, lava flows, and glaciers. Sturzstroms can move along a flat course for unexpectedly large distances...

... platform in front of the cliff for a distance of about 75 m, forming a narrow tongue-like projection. The reason why the debris exhibited such mobility is uncertain, but it may have flowed in a similar fashion to a sturzstrom, despite its modest volume (c. 12500m 3 ) and the equally modest height...

..., with a 7.3-km–long run-out and a conservatively estimated volume of 1.4 × 10 9 m 3 . This landslide dammed the Göksu River at Çoğla Canyon and formed the paleolake. Geomorphic investigations indicate the slide underwent a series of movements, including a slump, a sturzstrom, and a secondary block slide...

Some rock-avalanche deposits interbedded with lacustrine sediments represent initially subaerial lobes that flowed into lakes...

This type of high-speed (up to 50 or 100 m/sec) motion results from acceleration on a very steep slope (with slope angles a few tens of degrees) with stress transmitted by collision of clasts ( Heim, 1933...

There he used the terms “Trümmerstrom” (debris stream) and in an analogue sense “Sturzstrom” ( Heim, 1932 ); the latter is still in use in English terminology, but not in German. In describing these terms he compared the motion of large...
