USA avalanche problems and response / D.D. Bachman.

Title: USA avalanche problems and response / D.D. Bachman.
Author(s): Bachman, D. D.
Date: 2002.
Language: Russian transliteration entered into original records using BGN/PCGN 1947 romanisation of Russian; Cyrillic text in MARC 880 field(s) reverse transliterated from this by automated process; BGN/PCGN 1947 text then upgraded to Library of Congress romanisation.
In: Materialy Gli︠a︡t︠s︡iologicheskikh Issledovaniĭ. (2002.), Vol. 93 (2002)
Abstract: Presents overview of U.S. avalanche problems and responses to them. Notes change from primary association of avalanche involvement with mining activities up to 1940s to association with recreation thereafter. Thirty-three fatalities were recorded in winter 2000-2001. Outlines passive and active components of mitigation strategies for various activities (transportation, backcountry recreation, developed ski areas, occupied structures). Attributes relatively poor funding of research, despite significant loss of life, to comparatively limited property damage or societal disruption. Presented at International Symposium on Avalanches, September 2001, Kirovsk, Russia.
Notes:
