Abstract

Avalanches not only pose a major hazard to people and infrastructure, but also act as an important ecological disturbance.  In many mountainous regions in North America, including areas with existing transportation corridors, reliable and consistent avalanche records are sparse or non-existent.  Thus, inferring long-term avalanche patterns and associated contributory climate and weather factors requires the use of dendrochronological methods...
