Title Optimum Probing for Avalanche Victims
Subject Avalanches--Search and rescue operations
Description The technological problems connected with the development of a "wonder searching instrument" are immense. Until science presents us with this instrument we must use classical search devices. At present, the avalanche dog and the avalanche probe are in most general acceptance. Should the avalanche dog fail, or not be available as is the case in so many localities, the victim's chances depend on the effectiveness of a probing operation. This paper will examine probing methodology and attempt to justify a set of guidelines for the rescue leader to follow.
