- NGI articles 
In this paper, I wish to review the far reaching contributions from snow and avalanche research at NG! over the last 25 years. My review is based on my own association with the research at NGI (24 years) as well as the implications of the research on a world scale. The paper is confined to those applications which have important geotechnique applications. Therefore, the important work in avalanche forecasting and other practical research results such as natural hazards mapping are not discussed here. The topics include: forces on structures in deep snowcovers, runout distances using terrain parameters, slushflow research and avalanche dynamics and impact pressures.
