The aim of this project is based on the needs of mountain rescue service. Project deals with possibility of using mathematical models for the announcing of snow avalanche hazard level and prediction of avalanches in the Czech Republic. Project results fundamentally changes methods for identification of avalanche hazard in mountain areas. Security of citizens during their mountain activities and also security of rescue service staff during rescue operations will be subsequently increase.
