Record #125402:

Snow avalanche runout from two Canadian mountain ranges / D.J. Nixon, David M. McClung.

Title: Snow avalanche runout from two Canadian mountain ranges / D.J. Nixon, David M. McClung.
Author(s): Nixon, D. J.
McClung, David M.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Field measurements on maximum runout from Coast Mountains in British Columbia and Rocky Mountains are presented and compared. Includes statistical analysis of topographic terrain parameters such as starting-zone catchment area, horizontal reach, vertical drop, and relevant slope angles. Two models of prediction are examined: least squares regression of topographic parameters and runout ratios fitted to Gumbel distribution.
Notes:
