Short summary
A new numerical model, EDDA, is developed for simulating debris-flow erosion, deposition, and associated changes in debris mass, properties, and topography. An adaptive time stepping algorithm is adopted to assure both numerical accuracy and computational efficiency. The performance of the model has been verified through four numerical tests and a large-scale case study. EDDA can be a powerful tool for debris-flow risk assessment in a large area and real-time landslide warning.
