Snow and Avalanche Science: Highlights of applied avalanche research and forecasting

  • Avalanches impact transportation corridors, with subsequent economic ramifications, including the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park.
  • Large magnitude avalanches affect the landscape creating new habitat for flora and fauna.
  • Dendrochronology (study of tree-rings) is used to develop an avalanche chronology and examine contributory climate and weather factors.
