Abstract: Studies indicate that aerial detonation of explosives for avalanche work may be-more effective than hand thrown explosives that detonate on or in the snowpack. Our preliminary field work and observations tend to support the theory. Aerial delivery systems may have a place in North America's avalanche control programs.
