SLABS – Snow and AvaLAnche OBservation Standards
This will become the SLABS site in Englisch. SLABS will be based ob SWAG, but adopted by ÖGSL – AASA and its community.
‘This document contains a set of guidelines for observing and recording snow, weather, and avalanche phenomena. These guidelines were prepared for avalanche forecasting operations, but can be applied to other programs as well. The guidelines are presented as a resource of common methods and are intended to promote efficient and fruitful communication among professional operations and between research and operational communities. The observations presented in this digital manual were selected to support active avalanche forecasting programs. Our hope is that this manual will help forecasters carefully choose the observations that support their programs, and that those observations will generate high quality and consistent data sets.‘ (See original reference: https://www.americanavalancheassociation.org/swag)
