A team of researchers have developed a new model that describes how slab avalanches release. The new model opens a promising prospect for improving avalanche forecasting by combining traditional stability indices with a new index that quantifies the likelihood for cracks to propagate. In the long run, it will allow improving avalanche forecasting.
