Methods for the visualisation of digital elevation models for landform mapping.
M.J. Smith and C.D. Clark Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, 30, 7, 885-900. Digital elevation models (DEM) are increasingly used for landform mapping, particularly with the growing availability of national and global datasets....

Characteristics and prediction of high frequency avalanche runout.
M.J. Smith and D.M. McClung Arctic and Alpine Research, 29(3), 352-357 In this paper, we present field data and analysis relating avalanche terrain variables and avalanche runout for 46 high frequency avalanche paths. Most previous studies of this nature (Lied and Bakkehoi, 1980; McClung and Mears, 1991) have been concerned with the location of extreme runout for return periods of order 100 years. In our study, we focus on extreme runout avalanche paths where return periods are much less than 100 years and we compare the results with previous data collections.

Avalanche frequency and terrain characteristics at Rogers' Pass, British Columbia, Canada.
M.J. Smith and D.M. McClung Journal of Glaciology, 43(143), 165-171 The frequency of avalanches at a given location is the primary variable for calculating the risk as input to zoning applications and decisions about avalanche control options....
