D50 TV Program Focus: Avalanche Dangers: Early Warning PossibleAt the end of the ski season, the danger of avalanches in the mountains increases. Viennese researchers have developed a simple, reliable system that could warn people when avalanches are released. On high-risk slopes, they're laying fiber optic cables to transmit laser beams. If an avalanche rolls over the cable, sensors pick up the change in pressure and send a warning signal to skiers on the slopes or to people in endangered villages. The lead-time is short, but it could be enough to save lives.
Avalanche Dangers: Early Warning Possible will broadcast at 8:00 PM Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday on D50 TV Comcast channel 54.
