Avalanche protection in Norway: Organisational structure and tasks of NGI in comparison
NGI is a privately owned foundation offering research and consulting services in the field of natural hazards, and in particular avalanche protection in Norway. Its organisational structure and business fields are slightly different to the institutions in avalanche protection in Austria (WLV, BFW) but technical standards and protection strategies are quite similar. The paper gives an overview of the similarities and peculiarities of avalanche protection systems in Norway and Austria and is focused on the reasons for these specific situations in both countries.
