Avalanches' is a follow on from "Recent Natural Disasters - the Worst Earthquakes". Rather than worsening in intensity, natural disasters are worsening in their capacity to cause damage due to increased population and development, particularly in coastal areas. Earthquakes' is part of the 'Recent Natural Disaster' series about a common perception that natural disasters are occurring more frequently as well as becoming more intense in recent times. The series looks at seven types of natural disasters including Earthquakes, Fires, Floods, Avalanches, Cyclones/Hurricanes, Tsunamis and Volcanoes.

Humans trigger 90 percent of avalanche disasters, with as many as 40 deaths in North America each year. Once the avalanche starts to slide, it continues down the avalanche track, the natural path it follows downhill. Most are climbers, skiers, and snowmobilers. Learning about avalanches, and the conditions that cause them, can help people recreate more safely in the backcountry. After avalanches, large clearings or missing chutes of trees provide clues to an avalanche’s trajectory. The avalanche finally comes to a stop at the bottom of a slope, in the runout zone, where the snow and debris pile up.

One instant, a snow-covered mountain slope can be a picture of serene beauty; the next, it can be a roaring, roiling mass of unimaginable power and destruction. This book examines what causes avalanches, the damage they can wreak, and how people can avoid disastrous experiences with "The White Death".
