European Summer University courses on natural hazards, 2006 cycle - advanced course in avalanche dynamics and numerical modelling

European Summer University 2006: Advanced course on the use of new models in avalanche hazard mapping

The targeted audience consists of advanced students specialising in natural hazards issues and experienced engineers (outside academia) active in avalanche hazard mapping and consulting. Previous participation in one of the basic courses on avalanches offered by the European Summer University program or an equivalent formation will be a prerequisite for participation.

The intensive course will give an overview of the present knowledge of avalanche dynamics (gained particularly during SATSIE), introduce the modern concepts of hazard mapping, discuss the new avalanche flow models and apply them to real-world problems in the surroundings of the course location, including substantial field work.

The participants will be made aware of the different national guidelines and regulations concerning avalanche hazard mapping. If possible, representatives of national agencies responsible for avalanche safety will be invited to a presentation of the course results and a discussion of the prospects for harmonising the diverging standards within Europe. The course instructors will be recruited from the staff of the consortium members.
