Describing Snow Instability by Failure Initiation,Crack Propagation, and Slab Tensile Support

2018 Ben Reuter, Jürg Schweizer Geophysical Research Letters, 45, 7019–7027.     Abstract Snow instability is a generic term describing the propensity of a snow slope to avalanche. Inneed of a concise mechanics-based concept we suggest a framework based on failure initiation, crackpropagation, and slab tensile support. Following these three steps we modeled three metrics frommechanical data, which we…
