Abstract: Run-out for the extreme event on an avalanche path is calculated from confidence limits on a regression analysis of path topographic parameters. This results in redefinition of the traditional zoning problem by dividing it into an estimation of run-out distance by an engineering decision on the choice of confidence limit to the estimate, and a dynamic problem with boundary conditions defined by the chosen limit.
