    • Research Plan 2023–2025 

      Tregaskis, Callum; Jaedicke, Christian; Gauer, Peter; Gisnås; Robinson, Kate; Issler, Dieter; Salazar, Sean; Vicari, Hervé; Frauenfelder, Regula (NGI-Rapport;20230100-01-R, Research report, 2023-05-19)
      Snow avalanches are a frequent and significant natural hazard in Norway. Each year, avalanche events result in fatalities, evacuations, interruptions, and damage to infrastructure networks such as roads, railways, and ...
    • Snow mass quantification and avalanche victim search by ground penetrating radar 

      Jaedicke, Christian (Journal article, 2003)
      Ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems can be used in many applications of snow and ice research. The information from the GPR is used to identify and interpret layers, objects and different structures in the snow. A ...
    • The snowdrift pattern around a small hill in the High Arctic 

      Jaedicke, Christian; Thiis, Thomas K.; Bang, Børre (Chapter, 2000)
      The snow distribution in complex terrain is important for the planning of infrastructure, so that large snow depths can be avoided in residential areas and in connection with roads and railroads. Numerical models can give ...
    • The snowdrift pattern around two cubical obstacles with varying distance. Measurements and numerical simulations. 

      Thiis, Thomas K.; Jaedicke, Christian (Chapter, 2000)
      Snowdrifts around buildings can cause serious problems when formed on undesirable places. The formation of snowdrifts is highly connected to the wind pattern around the building, and the wind pattern is again dependent on ...
    • Snøskred - FoU 2013. Årsrapport 

      Jaedicke, Christian (NGI-rapport;20130036-02-R, Research report, 2014-01-31)
      Snøskred utgjør en betydelig fare for bebyggelse, infrastruktur og mennesker i utsatte områder i Norge. God arealplanlegging for å unngå bygging i skredutsatte områder forutsetter en kontinuerlig forbedring av modeller for ...
    • Sørpeskred. Egenskaper, historikk og sikringsløsninger 

      Jaedicke, Christian; Kalsnes, Bjørn; Solheim, Anders (Klima 2050;38, Report, 2022)
      Sørpeskred er en skredtype som gjør stor skade på infrastruktur og bebyggelse, men som er forsket på og dokumentert i mye mindre omfang enn for eksempel snøskred og flomskred. Sørpeskred oppstår når snødekket mettes med ...
    • Traditional Sámi snow terminology and physical snow classification—Two ways of knowing 

      Eira, I.M.G.; Jaedicke, Christian; Magga, O.H.; Maynard, N.G.; Vikhamar-Schuler, D.; Mathiesen, S.D. (Journal article, 2012)
      Humans describe the natural environment on the basis of their local experience and their interactions with nature in terms of its relevance to their daily lives. These descriptions are incorporated into local languages and ...
    • Wind-tunnel study of snowdrift around avalanche defence structures 

      Jaedicke, Christian; Naaim-Bouvet, Florence; Granig, Matthias (Journal article, 2004)
      Avalanche defence structures such as retarding dams and breaking mounds are widely used to protect residential areas and other kinds of infrastructure. The effect of the defence structures depends largely on their effective ...
    • Årsrapport [FoU Snøskred 2012] 

      Sandersen, Frode; Jaedicke, Christian; Domaas, Ulrik; Gauer, Peter; Kronholm, Kalle (NGI-rapport;20120031-01-R, Research report, 2013-02-01)
      Rapporten beskriver aktivitetene som er gjennomført i 2012 innenfor FoU prosjektet ”Snøskred” finansiert gjennom NVE. Prosjektet er delt inn i 4 hovedområder: - Modellering - Varsling - Sikringstiltak, herunder ...
    • Økt skredfare kan avverges 

      Jaedicke, Christian; Isaksen, Ketil; Sletten, Kari; Kronholm, Kalle (Klima;1-2009, Chapter, 2009)
      Klimaendringer gir villere vær, mer nedbør og flere skredhendelser i deler av Norge. Men dette trenger ikke føre til flere dødsfall og økte materielle skader, hvis vi bruker sunn fornuft og følger bygningsloven.
