Methods of avalanche defence in Norway
During this year’s study trip to Norway we inspected a lot of avalanche defence works. Technical avalanche protection in Norway has a comparatively young tradition and – unlike in Austria – mainly avalanche dams are constructed. Avalanche galleries and defence works are only used very rarely. The reasons for this are, on the one hand, the good geotechnical conditions for the erection of avalanche dams, and on the other hand, the fact that compared to dams these can be built faster and more cheaply.
