Abstract. The experience of calibrating Eglit’s avalanche model using data about the avalanche travel distance lengths and velocity data from the Zailiyskiy Alatau range (Kazakhstan) is discussed. Empirical equations are proposed that describe the dependence of the friction coefficients on the avalanche volume and type.
