Editorial: Quaternary of the British Isles and Adjoining Seas
Smith, M.J., Rose, J. and Lukas, S. Journal of Maps, v2008, 290-298. This volume of the Journal of Maps is one of four volumes published from an Annual Discussion Meeting (ADM) of the Quaternary Research Association (QRA), in January 2008, to examine the Quaternary of the British Isles and the adjoining seas. This volume deals with evidence for Quaternary environmental change in map-form, and the other volumes, which will be published in the journals Quaternary Science Reviews, Journal of Quaternary Science and Proceedings of the Geologists' Association will be concerned, respectively, with Quaternary climates and climate change, Quaternary landscapes, and Quaternary Geology.

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.
