Radar tech pierces the powder to reveal avalanche innards

The team describe trials of their avalanche-focused radar as a success

Using radar to study avalanches can provide valuable clues as to not just when they might occur, but how they will behave when they do. Current approaches, however, are unable to gauge all of movement deep inside these tumbling masses of snow and ice, but an advance in radar technology is promising to reveal a few more of their secrets. The new system pierces through the powder cloud to create 3D images of an avalanche's insides, helping to inform improved defenses against their devastating effects.
