21 September 2016

Since Oct. 2014, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) started to test the infrasound array methodology in the framework of NIFS Project, an Interdepartmental Research Rrogram on Natural Hazards. During the next International Snow Science Workshop (ISSW, October, 3-7 2016, Breckenridge, Colorado) iTem srl toghether with NPRA, Wyssen AC and the Sogn og Fjordane University College (Sogndal, Norway) present the preliminary results achieved by infrasound array monitoring of avalanches in two different sites during the last two winter seasons. Infrasonic measurements were made using one IDA® system at both sites. IDA® is an automatic infrasound avalanche detection system that is based on the technology developed by iTem (Italy) and Laboratorio di Geofisica Sperimentale of University of Florence (Italy), and commercialized in Norway by Wyssen Avalanche Control AG (Switzerland).
