The simulation of a snow slap avalanche phenomena using GISSim techniques for the information representation and EVOSim techniques for the propagation.

In the next figure a representation of an avalanche using the simulation model is shown.

The validation and the verification of the model is performed thanks the information provided by the IGC.
