The main objective of the avalRS project is to provide the Norwegian Public Roads Authority with avalanche inventories based on remote sensing data captured briefly after major avalanche events. The service is to be demonstrated in specific service case areas defined on-the-fly (i.e. depending on where major avalanche events will occur during the project phase) within the mountains of South-, West-, and Central Norway.

AvalRS aims at demonstrating that such a service is possible and that it will provide decision support during avalanche imposed road closures, and to help validate the issued avalanche forecasts. Overview over the affected problem area, specifically the length of the avalanche-affected road section and the volume of snow on the road, are essential for the authorities during road closures.

The avalRS project is a joint project between the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (prime contractor), the Norwegian Computing Center (subcontractor), and the Norwegian Public Roads Authority (user).
