Software packages

snowpack Snowpack
The Snowpack model simulates the development of the snowpack during the winter, based on meteorological input data. It can be used for avalanche warning purposes and to formulate answers to a variety of questions.
AVAL-1D is a numerical avalanche dynamics program. It can compute runout distances and the speed and pressure patterns that arise in dense flow and powder avalanches.
Rapid Mass Movements (RAMMS) is a modelling system for natural hazards that brings together a variety of process types; it is used in both research and everyday situations. The package consists of several process modules, labelled debris flows, rockfall, snowpack and dense flow avalanche, as well as protection measures and visualisation modules.
