[Study of extent of damage to cedar forest by large-scale slab avalanche, and estimation of the avalanche velocity at Makunosawa, Myoko, Japan] / Yukari Takeuchi, and 7 others.

Title: [Study of extent of damage to cedar forest by large-scale slab avalanche, and estimation of the avalanche velocity at Makunosawa, Myoko, Japan] / Yukari Takeuchi, and 7 others.
Translated title: Study of extent of damage to cedar forest by large-scale slab avalanche, and estimation of the avalanche velocity at Makunosawa, Myoko, Japan.
Author(s): Takeuchi, Yukari.
Date: 2010.
Language: Japanese.
In: Seppyo : Journal of the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice. (2010.), Vol. 72(2) (2010)
Abstract: Investigates extent of damage to artificial cedar forest from large-scale dry slab avalanche in Makunosawa valley on February 17, 2008, and role of forests in reducing avalanche velocity. Reports greatest damage near upper forest edge, with number of damaged trees decreasing gradually through forest. Estimates avalanche velocity from bending stress of broken cedar trees, considering two cases: 1) only suspension layer of avalanche flowing into forest; 2) two avalanche layers, consisting of suspension layer (density 3 kgm⁻³) and dense-flow layer (density 300 kgm⁻³). Calculations indicate: avalanche entered forest at velocity of 26-31 ms⁻¹, with suspension layer 17 m high and dense-flow layer less than 2 m high; avalanche slowed through forest and stopped around 130 m from upper edge.
