Effects of snow properties on humans breathing into an artificial air pocket - an experimental field study(2017)Breathing under snow, e.g. while buried by a snow avalanche, is possible in the presence of an air pocket, but limited in time as hypoxia and hypercapnia rapidly develop. Snow properties influence levels of hypoxia and ...
Burial duration: depth and air pocket explain avalanche survival patterns in Austria and Switzerland(2016)AIM: To calculate the first Austrian avalanche survival curve and update a Swiss survival curve to explore survival patterns in the Alps. METHODS: Avalanche accidents occurring between 2005/06 and 2012/13 in Austria and ...
