Record #171663:

An assessment procedure for glacial hazards in the Swiss Alps / Christian Huggel, Wilfried Haeberli, Andreas Kääb, Daniel Bieri, Shaun Richardson.

Title: An assessment procedure for glacial hazards in the Swiss Alps / Christian Huggel, Wilfried Haeberli, Andreas Kääb, Daniel Bieri, Shaun Richardson.
Author(s): Huggel, Christian.
Haeberli, Wilfried.
Kääb, Andreas.
Bieri, Daniel.
Richardson, Shaun.
Date: 2004.
In: Canadian Geotechnical Journal. (2004.), Vol. 41(6) (2004)
Abstract: French Abstract. Proposes two schemes for first-order assessment of hazards from ice avalanches and glacial lake outbursts. Aims to assess maximum event magnitude and probability of occurrence, based on published case histories and physical understanding. Outlines characteristics of glacial hazards and presents general method for assessment of corresponding hazard. Presents assessment procedures for both glacial lake outbursts and ice avalanches and demonstrates applicability using two case studies in Swiss Alps (Täsch lake outburst and Gutz glacier ice avalanche)
Notes:
