GUIDANCE FOR EXAMINATION OF AND PROTECTION AGAINST ROCK AVALANCHES

VEILEDNING VED UNDERSOEKELSER AV OG SIKRING MOT STEINSKRED

A definition of what is meant by mass movement, landslide and rockslide is given as an introduction. Examples on how rockslides behave in Norway and their consequences are also given. Conditions and causes are examined, as well as the kind of observations, measurements and calculations which have to be performed in areas with possible occurence of avalanches. Possible risks have to be evaluated on this basis. Safety measures which can be used for control and warning in order to prevent avalanches being released, as well as reducing the danger when avalanches have been initiated, are also described.
