dc.descriptionAbstract: Most of the important avalanche areas and research stations of the western United States were visited during the period February 15 through March 21, 1955. The avalanche defense measures and research work are discussed. Suggestions are made for improving methods of predicting avalanche danger and for control by explosives. For some avalanches, other defense measures (snow fences, barriers, reforestation) are proposed. The work and equipment of the research and observation stations are appraised, and in some cases improvements suggested. A research program suited to the existing facilities is outlined.
