Record #214460:

Determination of avalanche magnitude and frequency by direct observations and/or with the aid of indirect snowcover data / Paul M.B. Föhn, R. Meister.

Title: Determination of avalanche magnitude and frequency by direct observations and/or with the aid of indirect snowcover data / Paul M.B. Föhn, R. Meister.
Author(s): Föhn, Paul M. B.
Meister, R.
Date: 1982.
Publisher: Wien: Forstliche Bundesversuchsanstalt
Abstract: Using example of Salezertobel avalanche, demonstrates how direct avalanche records and indirect climatological snow data may be combined for approximating runout distances of 30-, 50-, and 100-year return periods. recommends emphasis on analysis for direct observations to enable calibration of indirect procedures.
