Glaciers and Avalanches: Himalaya
Avalanches, a sudden rapid flow of ice/snow down a slope, occur in ice bound terrain. The frosty covering, precariously held to slopes, coupled with excessive amounts of snow layering and mixed with unpredictable weather patterns such as sudden warming are the makings of a disaster. The higher reaches of the Himalaya remain under a perpetual snow where thousands of avalanches occur, involving the movement of thousands of tons of ice and vertical displacements of over 1,500 metres.
