SAME - Avalanche mapping, model validation and warning systems

Funded under: FP5-EESD


The present publication, including a CD-ROM, on avalanche mapping, model validation and warning systems presents the research results of a project run from 1996 to 1998. It brought together 14 laboratories from seven different countries in a collaborative structure. The main items addressed by the project are summarized in this volume, giving a good overview to scientists and stakeholders on issues related to existing databases and avalanche maps in Europe, model comparison, guidelines and technical specification for detection systems and sensors.

Furthermore, in-depth information is provided on CD-ROM including the full reports on relevant topics, as well as a multilingual dictionary often necessary for a better common understanding of phenomena related to avalanche hazards. .
