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. (2004.), Vol. 97 (2004)
Abstract: Presents preliminary results from field study of spatial variability of snowpack stability over winter 2000/2001 north-west of Davos, Swiss Alps, aimed at improving dry-snow avalanche modelling. Describes gridded observations on sloped and level snowpack, including Rutschblock test, stuffblock tests, penetrometer profiles, and manually observed full snow profiles. Discusses primary failure in stuffblock test, autocorrelation of spatial data, effect of slope angle on failures, and failure depth, type, and spatial continuity. Observes no significant difference in number of failures or failure type between slope and level sites. Reports variogram of primary failure depths agrees with visual analysis of continuity of weak layers.
