Short summary
Debris flow characteristics in the initiation zones are poorly understood because of the difficulty in monitoring. We studied the relationship between the flow characteristics and the accumulation conditions of the storage in an initiation zone of debris flow. Our study clarified that both partly and fully saturated flows are important processes in the initiation zones of debris flow. The predominant type of flow varied temporally and was affected by the volume of storage and rainfall patterns.
