Study of a large-scale dry slab avalanche and the extent of damage to a cedar forest in the Makunosawa valley, Myoko, Japan
Annals of Glaciology
Abstarct Accurate measurements of snow avalanche flows in forests are rare. To understand how forests can stop avalanches, we study a mixed flowing avalanche that stopped in a cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) forest in Japan. The large-scale dry slab avalanche occurred in the Makunosawa valley in Myoko on 17 February 2008 and damaged many trees. The site contains a geophone and other devices to detect avalanche activity. A nearby meteorological station provides weather information. Post-eventdoi:10.3189/172756411797252059 fatcat:7dkm2wze5ff5hi4nqqcarn5lue
