Record #140717:

Avalanche forecasting - an expert system approach / J. Schweizer, P.M.B. Föhn.

Title: Avalanche forecasting - an expert system approach / J. Schweizer, P.M.B. Föhn.
Author(s): Schweizer, J.,
Föhn, P. M. B.,
Date: 1996.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1996.), Vol. 42(141) (1996)
Abstract: Two models were developed using commercially available expert system software. Using weather, snow and snow-cover data as inputs, models evaluate the degree of avalanche hazard, the aspect and altitude of the most dangerous slopes. The models were then tested in the Davos region in the Swiss Alps. For the two models the performance is rated at 60 or 70 per cent, respectively. This latter figure compares favourably with that of a senior expert forecaster using conventional methods.
