FMCW Phased Array Radar for Automatically Triggered Measurements of Snow Avalanches

By Brennan et al. In the abstract, Brennan et al. write: “Radar has emerged as a means of measuring avalanche dynamics for validating models to predict avalanche behaviour for improved calculation of risk zones. However, current radar measurements do not provide a true representation of an entire avalanche flow. An FMCW, multi-chirp, 8 receiver channel […]
