AbstractTwo mathematical models for calculating the extreme avalanche runout from a fixed reference point on the path are presented and contrasted. The models are: (1) estimates of confidence limits on regression analyses of topographic parameters and (2) calculation of confidence limits on runout estimates from extreme value statistics.
