Avalanche Weather Forecasting

Avalanche Weather Forecasting
  1. Define an avalanche and describe its components, the types of weather that produce it, the different types of avalanches, and avalanche triggers
  2. Identify the weather parameters that play a key role in avalanche formation
  3. Outline the avalanche weather forecast process
  4. Given a request for an avalanche weather forecast, describe the background information that's important to gather about the area's climate, terrain, and snowpack, and its weather and avalanche history
  5. Describe the process of assessing current and future avalanche weather conditions for avalanche potential
  6. Describe how the information from the previous steps is integrated to produce a final avalanche weather forecast
