Avalanche research

Avalanche research aims to increase our knowledge of avalanches to reduce society's losses concerning this natural hazard. We collaborate closely with the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), and avalanche research institutes in Switzerland and Austria. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian National Rail Administration are examples of public agencies collaborating with partners and users of NGI's avalanche research results.
