On the complexities of glacier hazards / Hans Röthlisberger.

Title: On the complexities of glacier hazards / Hans Röthlisberger.
Author(s): Röthlisberger, Hans.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Zürich: Geographisches Institut der Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule Zürich
In: Aktuelle Aspekte in der Hydrologie. Festschrift zum 60. Geburtstag von Herbert Lang. (1993.),
Abstract: Two examples of glacier disasters in Switzerland (lake outburst at Mauvoisin caused by advance of Glacier de Giétro in 1818 and ice avalanche of Allalingletscher, Mattmark, in 1965) reveal four discernible phases in each case (preliminary, preparatory, release, course of disaster). Various aspects of risk evaluation are listed in table for each successive phase.
