Avalanches: Mass of snow and/or ice falling down a mountain or incline.Snow Sports: Sports activities in the snow.Electrical Equipment and Supplies: Apparatus and instruments that generate and operate with ELECTRICITY, and their electrical components.X-Ray Intensifying Screens: Screens which absorb the energy in the x-ray beam that has penetrated the patient and convert this energy into a light pattern which has as nearly as possible the same information as the original x-ray beam. The more light a screen produces for a given input of x-radiation, the less x-ray exposure and thus shorter exposure time are needed to expose the film. In most film-screen systems, the film is sandwiched between two screens in a cassette so that the emulsion on each side is exposed to the light from its contiguous screen.Scintillation Counting: Detection and counting of scintillations produced in a fluorescent material by ionizing radiation.Snow: Frozen water crystals that fall from the ATMOSPHERE.Rescue Work: Activities devoted to freeing persons or animals from danger to life or well-being in accidents, fires, bombings, floods, earthquakes, other disasters and life-threatening conditions.

In invertebrates, for example, the nerve net allows nerve impulses to spread over a wide area of the net because synapses can pass information in any direction.Radiography: Examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes by means of X-RAYS or GAMMA RAYS, recording the image on a sensitized surface (such as photographic film).Equipment Design: Methods of creating machines and devices.Asphyxia: A pathological condition caused by lack of oxygen, manifested in impending or actual cessation of life.Silicates: The generic term for salts derived from silica or the silicic acids. They contain silicon, oxygen, and one or more metals, and may contain hydrogen. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th Ed)X-Rays: Penetrating electromagnetic radiation emitted when the inner orbital electrons of an atom are excited and release radiant energy. X-ray wavelengths range from 1 pm to 10 nm. Hard X-rays are the higher energy, shorter wavelength X-rays. Soft x-rays or Grenz rays are less energetic and longer in wavelength. The short wavelength end of the X-ray spectrum overlaps the GAMMA RAYS wavelength range. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.Photons: Discrete concentrations of energy, apparently massless elementary particles, that move at the speed of light. They are the unit or quantum of electromagnetic radiation. Photons are emitted when electrons move from one energy state to another. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed)Biomedical Technology: The application of technology to the solution of medical problems.Fluoroscopy: Production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen.Selenium: An element with the atomic symbol Se, atomic number 34, and atomic weight 78.96.

Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM.Neural Networks (Computer): A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.Diagnostic Imaging: Any visual display of structural or functional patterns of organs or tissues for diagnostic evaluation.

It surrounds the rostral part of the brain and CORPUS CALLOSUM and forms part of the LIMBIC SYSTEM.Synaptic Transmission: The communication from a NEURON to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a SYNAPSE. In chemical synaptic transmission, the presynaptic neuron releases a NEUROTRANSMITTER that diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to specific synaptic receptors, activating them. The activated receptors modulate specific ion channels and/or second-messenger systems in the postsynaptic cell. In electrical synaptic transmission, electrical signals are communicated as an ionic current flow across ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES.Positron-Emission Tomography: An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.Anesthesia: A state characterized by loss of feeling or sensation. This depression of nerve function is usually the result of pharmacologic action and is induced to allow performance of surgery or other painful procedures.Water: A clear, odorless, tasteless liquid that is essential for most animal and plant life and is an excellent solvent for many substances.

Next, I will tell you something about the resisting forces on their own. Talking about the resisting forces, there are five important factors contributing to frictional resistance which are:. R1: Sliding friction between the avalanche and the underlying snow or ground.. R2: Internal dynamic shear resistance due to collisions and momentum exchange between particles and blocks of snow.. R3: Turbulent friction within the snow/air suspension. R4: Shear between the avalanche and the surrounding air.. R5: Fluid-dynamic drag at the front of the avalanche.. To find out acceleration on an avalanche, we have to know these resisting forces. The formula for this is listed in the documentation. The importance of the individual resisting forces varies within the avalanche and depends on the type of avalanching snow.. Lastly, I will teach you somethings about avalanche impact. Avalanches can produce very large dynamic forces on objects. High velocity, low density, dry snow avalanches may flow over or around ...
Avalanches have long been a natural threat to humans in mountainous areas. At the end of the Middle Ages, the population in Europe experienced significant growth, leading to an intensive exploitation of upper valleys. At almost the same time, Europes climate cooled down considerably and severe winters became more common. In the Alps, several villages were partly destroyed by avalanches, forcing inhabitants to develop the first mitigation strategies against the threat. By the late 19th century, the development of central administrations led to the creation of national forestry departments in each alpine country, principally to tackle the dangers posed by avalanches. As a result, forest engineers conceived not only the science of avalanches but also the first large-scale techniques to alleviate avalanche risks (such as reforestation). However, with the steady growth of transport, industry, tourism, and urbanization in high-altitude areas, these earlier measures soon reached their limits. A new impetus
WorkSafeBC is reminding employers, specifically in primary-resource industries, that they are required to identify, assess and mitigate avalanche risk.. WorkSafeBCs Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requires all employers to ensure safe workplaces, including minimizing worker exposure to the risk of avalanches. If an avalanche risk is identified, employers must develop and implement appropriate avalanche safety plans and/or a program.. "B.C. is full of such rugged terrain, and working in it without proper precautions is dangerous, even deadly," says Patrick Davie, WorkSafeBC manager of prevention field services, Kamloops. "Employers in these situations are required under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation to ensure a well-rehearsed safety plan is in place and well understood by all workers.". WorkSafeBC expects primary-resource industries with worksites in avalanche terrain to step up their risk awareness and prevention efforts. Employers can work with their local WorkSafeBC ...
To account for the dissipative mechanisms found in nature, non-conservative elements have been incorporated in the energy redistribution rules of sandpiles and similar models of hazard phenomena. In this work, we found that incorporating non-conservation in the form of spatially-distributed sink sites affect both the external driving and internal cascade mechanisms of the sandpile. Increasing sink densities result in the loss of critical behavior, as evidenced by the gradual evolution of the avalanche size distribution from power-law (correlated) to exponential (random). For low density cases, we found no optimal configuration that will minimize the risk of producing large avalanches. Our model is inspired by analogs in natural avalanche systems, where non-conservative elements have an inherent spatial distribution.

Avalanche research is a dense science, with practitioners gathering books of intricate data and speaking a complicated language. While the scientific method is likely the best approach for learning more about the snowpack, terrain, weather and human actions that contribute to avalanches, effectively communicating that method is a challenge, especially as more skiers and snowboarders venture deeper into unmanaged terrain.. Professional skier and Alaska heliskiing pioneer Dean Cummings nine years ago developed a simpler approach to avalanche awareness that emphasizes the practical protocols that anyone can employ with their skis on their feet. While Cummings "Be Snow Smart" program now reaches 30,000 Alaskan students a year through the North American Outdoor Institute, the 46-year-old father of two is only now pushing it into the Lower 48.. This month Cummings breezed through Colorado as part of a 26-city tour that featured an hour-long presentation of "Be Snow Smart" and a partial showing of his ...
First of all, physicians should make sure that conditions at the site of the avalanche are safe (we lost too many rescuers lives in the line of duty due to secondary avalanches)," Dr. Brugger said. "Secondly, the physician should try to gather some information about the circumstances of the accident, the number of missed persons and the time when the avalanche was released to assess the duration of burial. If the buried victims are localised, the extrication from the snow masses should be done as carefully as possible and great attention to the patency of the airway should be paid." ...

An Italian rescue official has said that a number of people have been killed after a hotel was hit by an avalanche, apparently triggered by an earthquake on Wednesday. Rescuers battled overnight to reach the hotel close to the Gran Sasso mountain in the Abruzzo region. "There are many deaths," Antonio Crocetta, the head of a mountain rescue team, was quoted as saying. Up to 30 people were in the Rigopiano hotel at the time of the avalanche. The roof partly collapsed and local residents in Farindola alerted emergency services. But a snowstorm and blocked routes made access to the hotel difficult and Italian media said the first rescuers only reached the hotel on skis at 04:00 (03:00 GMT) on Thursday. Rescuers said at least 20 tourists and seven staff had been inside the Rigopiano hotel when it was hit by the avalanche. The mountainous region of Central Italy was hit by a succession of four earthquakes on Wednesday and further tremors were reported overnight. The quakes came after the regions of ...

As the search for survivors at an Italian hotel buried during an avalanche continues, an investigation has been launched into a distress call and emails for help by the hotels owner. Triggered by a series of earthquakes, the avalanche claimed the lives of at least 14 people, with 15 still missing, according to reports. A staff of eight and 20 guests were reported to have been at the hotel at the time.. Bruno Di Tommaso, owner of hotel Rigopiano, a popular ski resort, reportedly sent an email asking for help from authorities in the nearby town of Pescara. "The phones are out of service. Customers are terrified by the earthquakes and have decided to stay outdoors. We tried to do everything possible to calm them but, unable to leave because of blocked roads, they are willing to spend the night in the car," his email read. "With our shovels we were able to clean the driveway, from the gate to the SS42 (state road). Aware of the general difficulties, we ask you to intervene.". The UKs Telegraph ...

Avalanche of Change. As an avalanche of change is sweeping me away, I wanted to embrace these changes. I wanted to be present. I wanted to set intentions instead of just letting the changes sweep me completely away. I wanted to put my stamp on the avalanche. As my birthday approached I realized it was the first in many months of changes that I am sure will affect who I am forever. At this moment, I live next to my parents, who are in the same house I grew up in. We are "the Raymonds" from the tv show Everybody Loves Raymond, except with triplets, and going through residency. I have traveled, seen some of the world, lived in other states and abroad. However I have always known I was going to return to my bedrock,, my home town. This time is different. This time there is a chance I might not return. My husband just got his first job in another state. We are moving to a little town. Everything about this town could not be more different from where we live now. We had bought a house, and had planned ...

Thought Id post this up as it might interest other folks. The Black Diamond Jetforce, like most of the avalanche airbag packs, comes with a fiddly metal-on-metal waist buckle and crotch strap. These are needed because an avalanche is going to be fighting to rip the pack off your bag as you tumble down the hill. The problem is theyre so fiddly to get on and off and for cat/heli skiing this is a problem because youre taking the pack on and off 20-30 times a day.. So, I decided to try modding mine.. I replaced the two waist buckles with rappel rings; just cheap SMC ones…. there were nice annodized red ones available but the basic allow ones were bigger. Then I used a DMM Alpha Bent Gate carabiner (keylock and a big gate mouth) attached to the crotch strap using a rubber doo-hickey that I canabalized off a Petzl quickdraw. Net result is a waist/crotch strap combo that does up simply by swinging the crotch strap between your legs and clipping the two rappel rings. Yes, its not a locking biner ...

All Socialist health care programs historically try to keep costs under control by rationing and denying care. The size of the managing bureaucracy grows and consumes ever more of the health care dollars, necessitating more rationing and denial of care in order to pay bureaucratic salaries and benefits.. Everything our Federal government tries to manage loses money, becomes highly inefficient, alienates the public, and costs far more than projected. The logical solution is to pull our Federal government out of health care and turn the management of health care back to the individual states and to the American people. While we are at it, education and welfare should also be returned to the oversight of the people and the states.. ...

Gail Davies (Department of Geography, UCL) opened her presentation stating that her paper is about deviants, mutants, virgins and rogues. Davies emphasised, however, that these are not her terms, but are used by her respondents to talk about the animals in their care. She explained that these are people managing the range of genetically altered mice used in contemporary biomedical research. Further, Davies argued that the terms take us back to the monstrous bodily overspills of early taxonomy. However, she pointed out that the context here is twenty-first century biology. Therefore, Davies proposed that these terms emerge as animal caretakers and scientists seek to understand the challenge that spontaneous mutations in laboratory mice present to their use as experimental objects. Unexpected happenings in the mouse house either herald a useful new strain of research animal, or they are culled. Gail Davies stated that she is interested in where and when these different outcomes occur - the ...
Entering the era of so-called personalized oncology through the growing use of molecular markers, one of the main questions concerns their capacities to refine patient prognosis beyond classical bio-clinical risk factors. From clinically and pathologically well-defined group of patients, these markers need to demonstrate their abilities to reveal heterogeneity in survival times among patients. For patients with early-stage of cancer treated with curative therapy, the problem is particularly challenging since molecular markers often reflect complex interplay of dowstream pathways that drive either the remaining tumor burden or its dynamic growth.. Cure rate models, especially those with biological interpretation, are well-suited for analyzing such data. These models are formulated by assuming that the population under study is composed of two subpopulations of patients, those who have no persitant tumor (sometimes referred as long-term survivors or cured patients) and those who have persistent ...
One of the biggest pitfalls to a date that feels like its heading downhill is the "snowball effect" - you sense somethings wrong, you panic, you clam up, you overreact, and it just makes matters worse. Suddenly, a not-great date is on its way to disasterville. If things are really awful, it makes more sense to call a polite and gentle halt rather than hurt someones feelings for hours or waste your time or your dates time. It really is okay to say, "You dont seem to be having a good time. Shall we just chalk this up to experience?" Be honest. Fess up. Stop the snowball before it becomes an avalanche and buries you both. Ignoring an overwhelming feeling; trying to hide, squash, cover up, or pretend it isnt there; or wishing it werent there isnt going to change the reality. Youre not responsible for your feelings, just your behavior. If you can gently acknowledge your feelings, you can deal with them. A lousy date isnt a reason to inflict pain on either of you. It isnt necessary to hang ...
The following fall, several key unplanned events occurred that resulted in seeing Aimee a few days in a row, and a trusted friend learned from both of us that there was mutual interest. I still remember going to campus on a day when I had no classes, hoping to bump into Aimee and perhaps work up the courage to ask her out. I never did spot her, but when she called me out of the blue to ask me a made up question about a class she was taking, I knocked an entire shelf over in my closet, trying to find my notes. During my avalanche, I distinctly remember my very sad attempt at asking Aimee to dinner. Since her intention was to ask me out anyway, she made it easy for me, and our story officially began ...

Avalanche Beacons. The 1997-8 ski season was particularly devastating among backcountry skiers with a higher rate of avalanche fatalities due to several group fatalities this year. The 1998-1999 season continued the trend of more backcountry deaths, particularly among snowboarders near ski areas. The routine use of avalanche beacons in the backcountry has become the standard practice of many skiers in the North America even though incidents involving skiers in this part of the country are quite low. The number of deaths each year due to avalanche among backcountry skiers (not heliskiers) in the US and Canada is usually less than ten (6 in 1996) and 40 percent occur during high avalanche risk periods. Avoidance of these situations is preferrable to the use of beacons as a thin safety net. The beacon cant dig you out. Beware of the group bravado effect- we tend to take more risk when we ski in a group but it is a false sense of security. Never ski a slope you wouldnt ski alone.. General Injury ...

Snowmobiling and backcountry skiing are the leading causes of avalanche deaths but researchers say the fatality rates are on par with other day-to-day risks and have been decreasing as Canadians grow more educated of the dangers.
Before becoming the top three picks in a 2009 Avalanche draft class that is shaping up to be one of the best in franchise history, centers Matt Duchene and Ryan OReilly and defenseman Stefan Elliott already had something in common. They were teammates on Canadas gold medal-winning squad at the 2008 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in Slovakia.. A year later, they reconvened in Denver as Colorados top draft picks. The three 20-year-olds, along with 2011 first-round draft pick Gabriel Landeskog, 19, are why Colorado has great potential to grow. Elliott made an extraordinary NHL debut Saturday night, producing the game-winning goal and playing superbly at both ends of the ice in a 5-2 comeback victory over the similarly young Edmonton Oilers. "It was pretty storybook for me, a pretty special moment," Elliott said Sunday after logging 19:36 of ice time Saturday night. "Not many guys from the same (2009) class are playing right now, being so young. Its a testament to the scouting staff. ...

Principal component analysis (PCA) and other multivariate analysis methods have been used increasingly to analyse and understand depth profiles in XPS, AES and SIMS. For large images or 3D imaging depth-profiles PCA has been difficult to apply until now simply because of the size of the matrices of data involved. In a recent paper we described two algorithms, RV1 and RV2 that improve the speed of PCA and allow datasets of unlimited size respectively. In this paper we now apply the RV2 algorithm to perform PCA on full 3D ToF-SIMS data for the first time without subsampling. The dataset we process in this way is a 128x128 pixel depth profile of 120 layers, each voxel having a 70,439 value mass spectrum associated with it. This forms over a terabyte of data when uncompressed, and took 27 hours to process using the RV2 algorithm using a conventional windows desktop PC. While full PCA (e.g. using RV2) is to be preferred for final reports or publications, a much more rapid method is needed during ...

The mechanical response of snowpacks to penetrating liquid water was observed over two winter seasons in the central Cascade Mountains, Washington, U.S.A. Following the onset of rain, three evolutionary regimes of snow behavior were identified: immediate avalanching, delayed avalanching, and return to stability. Immediate avalanching occurred within minutes to an hour after the onset of rain and the time of release could be predicted with an accuracy of less than an hour from meteorological forecasts of the transition from snow to rain. These avalanches usually slid on surfaces substantially deeper than the level to which water or associated thermal effects had penetrated. The mechanism by which alteration of a thin skin of surface snow can cause deep slab failure has not been identified, but several possibilities involving a redistribution of stress are discussed. Delayed avalanches released several hours after rain started. The delay varied, depending on the rate of increasing stress ...
You wake up suddenly while sleeping in your camping tent. After sitting up, you hear a distant rumbling sound overhead. Its not thunder. Its not a jet. You listen carefully for a few seconds, and then realize...its an avalanche! With one of your Swivel Back Badge Reels dangling from your neck, you climb out of the tent, strap on your skis, and then use the ski poles to launch yourself down the slope. The base of the mountain rests a short distance from your campsite, but as you glide down the snow, the avalanche starts gaining on you, creeping up closer...and closer ...
It is wise to heed the warnings, and its posting them is an essential service: there is a role for regulation in preventing certain kinds of bang where there is heavy snowfall.. This is, however, micro scale, in terms of economics and analogies.. The macroprudential approach is all about the fact that there is too much snow.. That, in itself, can be managed: economic policy is all about analogies and governments have more control than you might think, over the geography and weather - climate, even - leading up to economic avalanches.. Thats macroeconomic policy.. Prudential regulation is about ensuring that we dont build our essential infrastructure under likely avalanches; and that anything significant we build, up in the mountains, should be individually resilient. This prudence ventures into macro when we regulate against excessive interdependence - its not enough to build for individual resilience, we have to regulate against a tendency to an excessive interdependence that ...
People who ski and snowmobile in the backcountry know they are taking their life in their hands every time they go up on a slope heavy with snow.
Helicopter and snowcat skiing in the backcountry involves different hazards such as avalanches, tree wells or helicopter incidents, which can result in serious injuries or even death. While the risk associated with avalanche involvements is well understood, no systematic analyses have been conducted on the other risks. In this project, we will gather all the historic information about serious accidents which has been recorded by member operators of HeliCat Canada (trade association of the helicopter and snowcat skiing industry) to quantitatively determine the risks associated with the various hazards. The results will help operators to better address existing operational weaknesses and develop evidence based approaches for reducing the risks for guides and guests while travelling in the backcountry.

Our results show that resting state activity of the human brain as measured by MEG is well described by a critical (i.e., balanced) branching process, which produces scale-invariant neuronal avalanches. These findings correspond to neuronal avalanches previously identified at smaller spatial scales in in vitro and in vivo (e.g., in the awake monkey), implying a universality of cortical activity (Beggs and Plenz, 2003; Gireesh and Plenz, 2008; Petermann et al., 2009).. The cortical MEG signal is generated mainly by synchronous synaptic activity that induces current flow along extended structures aligned in parallel, such as apical dendrites of pyramidal neurons (Hansen et al., 2010). It also has a time resolution that matches the millisecond timescale of neural activity propagation, in contrast to the relatively slow timescale of the BOLD signal in fMRI. Compared with EEG, the MEG signal is less distorted by the meninges and skull. Here, we transformed the continuous, z-normalized MEG signal into ...

Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic retired Thursday after a 20-year NHL career during which he played on two Stanley Cup championship teams.. Sakic, 40, the face of the franchise, spent his entire 20-year NHL career with Colorado or the Quebec Nordiques. He ends a productive and illustrious career with 1,641 points -- 625 goals, 1,016 assists -- with nine seasons of 30-or-more goals and six with 100-or-more points, all franchise highs.. The center is eighth overall in points, 11th in assists and 14th in goals all-time.. Avalanche officials said this week Sakics No. 19 sweater will be retired during a ceremony at the season opener and will hang in the rafters at Denvers Pepsi Center.. ...
The modeling of the laser-induced damage processes can be divided into thermal and electronic processes. Especially, electronic damage seems to be well understood. In corresponding models, the damage threshold is linked to the excitation of valence electrons into the conduction band, and often the damage is obtained if a critical density of free electrons is exceeded. For the modeling of the electronic excitation, rate equation models are applied which can vary in the different terms representing different excitation channels. According to the current state of the art, photoionization and avalanche ionization contribute the major part to the ionization process, and consequently the determination of laser-induced damage thresholds is based on the calculation of the respective terms. For the theoretical description of both, well established models are available. For the quantitative calculation of the photoionization, the Keldysh theory is used most frequently, and for the avalanche processes the ...
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes." ~Charles Swindoll ...
The revolving door at left wing on the Blackhawks top line has been spinning all season as coach Joel Quenneville continues to search for a complement for center Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.. With the Hawks offense lagging of late - including scoring slumps for both Toews and Hossa - and a two-game losing skid, Quenneville went a step further for Tuesday nights matchup against the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center when he separated the two standouts in a near total makeover of the lines.. Hitting shuffle worked, especially when it came to the bottom two trios.. In their come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the Avalanche, the Hawks got a combined five goals from the third and... ...

Bates, Houston and six other climbers were involved in another attempt on K2 in 1953, one year before the mountains first ascent. They nearly reached their highpoint of 1938 when a massive storm and an ill teammate forced their retreat. They descended, pulling Art Gilkey behind them; Gilkey had developed thrombophlebitis, and soon blood clots were entering his lungs. During their descent an enormous avalanche caused a series of unfortunate slips and rope tangles that led to "the most famous belay in mountaineering history." One rope team was ripped down by the avalanche, entangling and pulling down the three lower teams. Art Gilkey was lost; the remaining six were saved from sliding off onto the glacier, thousands of feet below, by the twists in the ropes that led to Pete Schoening, the only climber who had managed to stay in one place. Gilkeys body was found forty years later, four miles from the scene. We were numbed by what happened. Art was gone. It didnt seem possible that he had been ...
EIGHT STEPS TO REDUCING YOUR AVALANCHE RISK. 1. Get smart! The smart first step is to learn from the avalanche experts. This will take a commitment of time and effort on your part. Divide the task into three parts. First, take an avalanche course. Second, check out the videos on avalanche safety. Third, do some reading and expand on what you have learned. 2. Utilize your resources. WWW.AVALANCHE.ORG. Sawtooth Avalanche Center (208) 622-8027. Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center (208) 765-7323. Payette Avalanche Center (208) 634-0409. 3. Identify avalanche terrain. Avalanches run repeatedly year after year in the same areas/slopes called avalanche paths. Avalanches most often start on slopes of 30-45 degrees but sometimes start on slopes as shallow as 25 degrees and as steep as 50 degrees. Knowing the slope angle is "rule number one" in recognizing avalanche terrain, for once slope angles reach 30 degrees, you are in potential avalanche terrain regardless of all other factors.. 4. Read natures ...

This is a list of Spanish words which are considered to be of Basque origin. Some of these words existed in Latin as loanwords from other languages. [clarification needed] Some of these words have alternate etymologies and may also appear on a list of Spanish words from a different language. abarca "sandal" (cf. Basque abarka < abar "branch", because they were originally made of branches). The word was loaned in Mozarabic and even in Arab pargha/bargha and from here to Spanish alpargata (Trask 2008, 74). abertzale / aberzale "Basque patriot, Basque nationalist" (cf. Basque abertzale). Recent loanword as it is a Basque neologism from the 19th century. agur "goodbye" (from Basque agur with the same meaning) (DRAE). aizcolari (cf. Basque aizkolari). Recent loanword. alud "avalanche (of snow)", from Basque elurte or uholde, olde "flood; avalanche" (Joan Corominas; DRAE); elurte is a blend of elur "snow" and lurte "landslide" (see lurte below). angula "elver", from Basque angula, from Lat anguilla ...
The head of Carmel Submarine Canyon lies in 15 m of water about 200 m off a coarse-sand beach in the southeast corner of Carmel Bay, California. Very coarse sand is the predominate material on the beach, adjacent shelf, and upper canyon-head slopes, while silt and clay cover the surface below a water depth of about 35 m. Along a shore-normal transect, median grain size decreases between the beach and canyon rim but increases down the upper canyon-head slope. On angle-of-repose slopes in the upper canyon head, downslope-coarsening deposits, which are everywhere there is active sand movement, are similar to a type of sediment gravity flow deposit formed by grain flows (sand avalanches). Using three sand fractions that were dyed different fluorescent colors, scuba divers generated sand avalanches that produced deposits similar to the natural deposits. The dyed-sand deposits, which extended as far as 25 m below the initiation point, were inversely graded and increased in grain size downslope. ...

Yet, as John Allen, the man who led the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue team from 1989 to 2007, is only too aware, there are few things more foolhardy than taking to the hills without adequate precautions to ensure a terrific day out isn t transformed into a terrifying white-out.. Allen penned his autobiography, Cairngorm John (Sandstone Publishing) last year and recounted his myriad experiences on the mountains, where the weather can close in on unsuspecting climbers in the space of a few moments.. And he has witnessed enough tragedies to realise that you can never tame Nature to the stage where you have eliminated risk altogether.. Indeed, the winter of 2012-13 was a pretty grim season on the slopes. In January, four climbers perished on Glencoe, a walker subsequently died in the Cairngorms, and three others lost their lives, following a devastating avalanche in February.. Allen knows as much as anybody about the ferocity of the conditions during these incidents.. He said: It is positively Arctic. ...

  • KABUL (Reuters) - More than 180 people have been killed in north Afghanistan in some of the worst avalanches there for 30 years, officials said on Thursday, with heavy snow set to last for two more days after an unusually dry winter led to fears of drought. (reuters.com)
  • Suddenly, a line tore across the snow, releasing a massive avalanche that crashed 700 feet down the slope, engulfing Dan in car-sized panes of broken snow that settled, slowly, into a terrifying stillness. (hcn.org)
  • Although avalanches can occur on any slope given the right conditions, in the United States certain times of the year and certain locations are naturally more dangerous than others. (skihood.com)
  • Wintertime, particularly from December to April, is when most avalanches will "run" (slide down a slope). (skihood.com)
  • Large vertical swaths of trees missing from a slope or chute-like clearings are often signs that large avalanches run frequently there, creating their own tracks. (skihood.com)
  • There may also be a large pile-up of snow and debris at the bottom of the slope, indicating that avalanches have run. (skihood.com)
  • The extra weight of new snow alone can cause a slab to break off and fall down the slope, particularly in storm-induced avalanches. (skihood.com)
  • These glaciers were not on a steep slope, but the avalanche moved quite quickly. (nasa.gov)
  • The twin avalanches, occurring just a few kilometers apart, can be seen in false color in a spectacular image captured on Oct. 4 by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) aboard NASA's Terra satellite. (livescience.com)
  • The huge avalanche , one of the largest scientists had ever seen, sent a tongue of debris spreading across 9 square kilometers (3 square miles). (nasa.gov)
  • With debris reaching speeds of 140 kilometers (90 miles) per hour, the avalanche was remarkably fast for its size. (nasa.gov)
  • Avalanche strain distributions have the general form P ( s ) = C s − τ e x p [ − ( s / s 0 ) 2 ] {\displaystyle P(s)=Cs^{-\tau }exp[-(s/s_{0})^{2}]} where C is a normalization constant, t is a scaling exponent, and s0 is the characteristic strain of the largest avalanches. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scientists with the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences and the International Permafrost Association analyzed satellite data and also ran computer models to better understand the avalanche dynamics. (livescience.com)

  • Relatively little empirical research has explored this, but a sweeping new study, led by two Montana State University researchers, may soon help us understand how skiers, snowboarders and others make decisions in avalanche terrain. (hcn.org)
  • Avalanches are an inherent risk of the sport due to the nature of snow and its application on steep, mountainous terrain. (skihood.com)
  • While expertise is not a guarantee that you won't be caught in an avalanche, it does provide some basic knowledge about how to avoid avalanche areas, what types of weather and terrain signs to watch for, and what to do if you are caught in an avalanche - all information that may save you or other members of your party.

  • Neuronal activity could similarly be considered as a kind of neuronal avalanche in which activity propagates as individual neurons trigger action potential firing in subsequent neurons. (jneurosci.org)
  • And all-male groups typically ski steeper slopes than all-female groups on days with the same avalanche hazard, although the data on all-female groups is still small. (hcn.org)
  • This type of avalanche propagation typically occurs in these systems without oscillations, synchrony, or waves. (jneurosci.org)
  • Fortunately, some space-y spies had captured imagery of the events: Earth-orbiting satellites, including Landsat 8, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-1A, revealed before-and-after images of the areas where the twin avalanches occurred. (livescience.com)
  • The glaciologists studying these avalanches said they aren't certain exactly what caused the events, but they will continue to investigate. (livescience.com)
  • Dislocation avalanches are rapid discreet events during plastic deformation, in which defects are reorganized collectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • Notice the large amounts of silt and clay in the path of the first avalanche. (nasa.gov)
  • We see this for other large-volume, high-speed avalanches, and it really illustrates the massive amount of energy released. (nasa.gov)
  • Also, multiscale nature of dislocation avalanche event gives dislocation velocity a large range. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, avalanches, earthquakes, and forest fires all propagate in systems organized into a critical state in which event sizes show no characteristic scale and are described by power laws. (jneurosci.org)
  • Abdul Rashid Bijran, a resident of Padpati Poshkar in Kangan area, came under the avalanche while he was on the way to collect firewoods from a nearby forest, he said. (hindustantimes.com)
  • Using these methods, the present study was conducted to examine two issues: (1) Do cortical networks in vitro produce avalanches that comply with physical theories of critical systems? (jneurosci.org)
  • Earth Observatory checked in with Andreas Kääb (University of Oslo), lead author of the study, to find out more about how the avalanche happened and what it means. (nasa.gov)
  • If present, neuronal avalanches would constitute a new mode of network activity, and could have important implications for information processing. (jneurosci.org)
  • They also sent teams of researchers to investigate the avalanches in the field. (nasa.gov)
  • Simulation results also revealed the scale free nature of dislocation avalanches and concluded that deformation of crystals having highly mobile dislocations exhibits the attributes of a self-organized critical (SOC) process. (wikipedia.org)
  • Obtained evidence of avalanche scaling in water droplets, and continuously moved away from this regime (to a response with no scaling, i.e., with characteristic time scales). (umich.edu)
  • Patrick Bordeleau had a goal and rookie Nathan MacKinnon followed his solid NHL debut with another assist for the Avalanche. (yahoo.com)
  • Ducks 6, Avalanche 4: Kyle Palmieri scored 47 seconds apart to highlight a franchise-record six-goal second period that snapped a four-game losing streak (0-2-2) for visiting Anaheim. (chicagotribune.com)
  • McGinn's first goal put the Avalanche ahead 2-1 at 5:21 of the middle session before Palmieri scored on a backhander at 7:47 and cleanup up a rebound shortly thereafter to give the Ducks the lead for good. (chicagotribune.com)
  • Colorado stormed back during the wild nine-goal period when McGinn and Landeskog scored 33 seconds apart to draw the Avalanche within 5-4 with 1:19 remaining, but Perreault answered 30 seconds later to send Anaheim into the break with a two-goal cushion. (chicagotribune.com)
  • A person on Sunday died after he came under an avalanche at Kangan area in Ganderbal district of Jammu and Kashmir, a police official here said. (hindustantimes.com)
  • Can human judgment handle avalanches? (hcn.org)
  • Avalanche coach Patrick Roy was fined $10,000 by the NHL for his actions at the end of Wednesday's win over Anaheim. (yahoo.com)
  • The Avalanche ended up with a power play when Weber was give four minutes for roughing, one of three penalties by the veteran defenseman. (yahoo.com)
