Nature's Fury: Avalanches
Innovative
Solution(S)

When the snow is weak, any number of things can trigger an

avalanche
.
For example,

strong winds
,
a storm
, a

change in temperature
, or

even

the weight of a person
.
How Avalanches Are
Created
Bibliography
Allan A Martin Sr. P. S. Grade 8
Impacts
Avalanches
start when the snow becomes
weak
.
Weaknesses in the snow can be caused by the snowflakes forming a cohesive mass as they
melt
and
re-freeze
together. This can weaken the snow above.

SAFETY
-Check weather before going on mountains
-Travel with a partner
-Carry safety equipment at all times
-Keep checking the signs for possible avalanches
-Complete a safety course

Possible Technological solutions
Pre-Developed Clothing/ Accessories
GPS tracking system that transmits location to rescue teams, or people around the location.



Sadly, they were
not

prepared
and that cost them

lives.
How to Prepare For An Avalanche

.
So, we have come up with an

INNOVATIVE

solution.
That is where the problem lies.


actually you did this better than I did you know the part where I did it can you just like swap/cage it with this one? #CAS
