    The Hidden History of Avalanches: Using Tree-Rings to Reconstruct Avalanche Events in SE Alaska
    Snow avalanches are a hazard to humans, transportation corridors, and infrastructure in southeast Alaska—and they also act as ecological landscape-changing disturbances. Join scientists Eran Hood of UAS and Erich Peitzsch of USGS as they present their research on using tree rings to develop an avalanche chronology for six avalanche paths in the Juneau area. This work provides insights into the frequency of large magnitude avalanches and contributory factors.
