Ancient underwater avalanches carried sand into the ocean’s abyss during a time when some least expected it.
A new model combining future permafrost degradation and related avalanches demonstrates that artificial lake-lowering could significantly reduce the risk of glacial lake outburst floods.
A record-length turbidity current triggered by river flooding has revealed a new link between the surface and the deep sea.
Ice avalanches may have traveled at speeds of up to 80 meters per second.
High-resolution radar images from Switzerland’s experimental test site show that snow temperature is a key factor in classifying avalanche behavior.
Scientists used drones, seismic data, and eyewitness accounts to figure out what unleashed an unthinkably large landslide on a spring day in Colorado.
Predicting glide avalanches and explaining how they work are difficult tasks, but the forces they exert can be calculated fairly well.
