Throughout this poster presentation, we have analyzed the main avalanche accidents that have happened in southwestern Europe in recent years, relating them to the synoptic situations of the previous days, with the aim of clustering the different events to obtain significant patterns. Furthermore, it is interesting to be able to recognize if there a...

Los aludes de tipo deslizamiento basal son descritos como exóticos, complejos y poco conocidos por muchos especialistas y tienen la peculiaridad de que son muy difíciles de predecir. Este tipo de alud es también conocido como avalancha de deslizamiento, deslizamiento basal o glide avalanche, y muchos de los aludes de fondo son de tipo deslizamiento...

This paper uses mobile phone data (Call Detail Record) to analyze backcountry skiers’ dynamics in avalanche terrain. A case study is conducted in Andorra using data from February 2018. In this study, mobile phone data is combined with the Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale (ATES) cartog-raphy to analyse the behaviour of people in avalanche terrain. T...

As if a "Boeing 747" was spoken, today there are many practitioners of winter mountain activities that carry their own black boxes, installed with their individual protection equipment, in order to portray some experiences that over time the memory will forget. For scientists and specialists, its function is to store data that, in the event of an a...

Andorra is located in the axial Pyrenees, in a climatic transition zone (Atlantic-Mediterranean). Hence, different atmospheric circulation types generate a high variability on the spatial distribution of snowfalls and windstorms. This leads to episodes with different spatial patterns of avalanche activity affecting in a different way several ski re...

In the Pyrenees, melt-freeze and wind crusts are a very common element in the snow cover. Such layers have an important role in both dry and wet slab avalanche triggering. The crusts are characterized by a complex metamorphism and associated snow cover stability increase or decreases over time. To learn more about melt-freeze crusts, during 2013 la...
