The predicted debris-flow source areas were determined by Ellen and Mark by analysis of detailed mapping (Wentworth, 1986; Ellen, Cannon, and Reneau, 1988) that was meticulously digitized by Ramsey and May. The mapped debris-flow sources triggered by the 1982 storm were digitized by Wieczorek and Mark from mapping documented in Ellen and Wieczorek (1988); the boundary of this mapping was digitized by Beukelman. The shaded-relief topographic base was created by Graham using relations provided by R.A. Haugerud.
These topographic characteristics are used to predict the likely future source areas shown on this map.
