4. Data Shortcomings
- Some of the cross-sections are erroneous. Even if visualization of the cross-sections allows the identification of the erroneous ones, uncertainty persists regarding the validity of the remaining ones;
- Debris flow occurred during the failure flood. The failure of a secondary dike created a new path for the water in an existing forest leading to huge erosion and removal of trees;
- During the flood, 22 km downstream the secondary dike, just upstream of Perron Falls, a new river path was created, rending the use of the available cross-sections useless for any validation case study.
- The only existing hydraulics control upstream of Perron Falls is located 8.4 km away from the failed dike.
