Snow disaster is one of the top ten natural disasters worldwide. Almost every year, there will be snow disasters in north Xinjiang, northwestern China. Since the accumulated heavy snow in winter season will seriously threaten people’s lives, the main object of this study is to produce a potential hazard map for snow avalanche prevention. Taking three snow seasons from November to March of year 2008 to 2010, potential hazard areas were estimated, based on snow volume products and terrain… 
Earthquake hazard assessment through geospatial model and development of EaHaAsTo tool for visualization: an integrated geological and geoinformatics approach
An earthquake is a natural phenomenon which is very frequent in Himalayan region in India. In southern peninsula India, the spatial occurrence of earthquake is irregular, whereas the northeastern,
Automatic Detection of Regional Snow Avalanches with Scattering and Interference of C-band SAR Data
TLDR
The results indicate that the performance of the innovation proposed in this paper, which employs multivariate comprehensive descriptions of avalanche characteristics to actualize regional automatic detection, can be more objective, accurate, applicable and robust to a certain extent.
No evidence of widespread decline of snow cover on the Tibetan Plateau over 2000–2015
TLDR
The results show no widespread decline in snow cover over the past fifteen years and the trends of snow cover phenology over the TP has high spatial heterogeneity, and the impact of both temperature and precipitation strengthened as elevation increases.

Analyzing disaster-forming environments and the spatial distribution of flood disasters and snow disasters that occurred in China from 1949 to 2000
TLDR
Experimental results indicate that serious flood disasters distribute mainly on the south area of China and snow disasters occur on the north area; those areas should be allocated correspondingly more salvage materials.
Disaster monitoring and early-warning system for snow avalanche along Tianshan Highway
TLDR
The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method is introduced in building snow avalanche danger analysis model which is incorporated into early-warning system which is developed by ArcGIS Engine 9.2 and can carry out the full workflow of early- Warning information publication service.
