Short summary
Avalanche hazard assessment requires a very precise estimation of the potential starting zone, which nowadays still depends, to a large extent, on expert judgement of avalanches. Therefore, a new algorithm for automated identification of potential avalanche release areas was developed. Potential avalanche release areas can be defined for varying snow accumulation scenarios, improving the automated estimation of release areas, in particular for frequent avalanches.
