The Avalanche refers to the rapid flow of snow over a sloping surface, which is usually triggered by a sudden instability in the snowy or accumulated ice in a high area. There can be many reasons for avalanches. Due to heavy snowfall or snowfall in any high mountainous parts, snow accumulation occurs on the mountain slopes due to which avalanche factors are formed in unstable areas of the mountain. Sometimes wind direction determines the pattern of snow accumulation on the slopes of the mountains as well as the pattern of snow accumulation. If a strong wind blows or flows, it can trigger an uphill slope of mountains leading to an avalanche. Let's know more about Avalanche And Climate Change.
