A dramatic avalanche from Annapurna South
by Emily Hill
We spent 2 weeks at Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal conducting measurements on the debris covered South Annapurna Glacier. We frequently heard avalanches but often they were over too quick to capture on camera. Fortunately this was one of the largest and the camera was at the ready. These avalanches are an important source of mass for the glacier below.
