Characteristics and prediction of high frequency avalanche runout.

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.
