Les risques naturels en montagne

Natural Mountain Hazards


D. Richard, F. Naaim-Bouvet

Edition 2015

Avalanches, glacial-related hazards, floods and mudslides, slope failure and falling rock are experienced by all mountaineers. Economic development based on tourism increases exposure to hazards; the catastrophe of the Grand-Bornand campground and its 23 victims being a case in point. This reference work, targeting professionals and decision-makers, but also the general public, explains these phenomena and explores protection techniques.

L'approche conceptuelle pour l'étude des avalanches


M. Meunier, C. Ancey, D. Richard

Edition 2004

This book explores a new approach to avalanche studies, more closely linked to hydrology than to hydraulics. This new approach consists of the rigorous use of field data confined to the avalanche track being studied. The conceptual approach is ...
