Abstract

Recent research has established strong correlations between meteorologic data, snowpack stratigraphy, and snow avalanche occurrence. Based on several years of data collection on weather conditions and avalanche activity in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, discriminant analysis was applied to identify the variables which distinguished between avalanche and non avalanche days. Forecasts of avalanche-day occurrence or nonoccurrence were over 80 % accurate
