Museum Visitors Learned About Snow Hazard

12.12.2018

December 12, Valentina Andreyevna Lobkina, Candidate of Geographic Sciences, Senior Researcher, Laboratory of Avalanche and Mudflow Processes of the Sakhalin Branch of the Far Eastern Geological Institute, Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, delivered a lecture «Snow Hazard Areas on Sakhalin Island».


The students of the Sakhalin College Services and the Institute of Natural Sciences and Technosphere Safety of SakhSU have discovered what the term «snow hazard» means, what type of snowstorms can occur and under what circumstances educational institutions and federal highways are closed. The audience also learned more details about problems related to snow storage facilities management.



Valentina Andreevna told about snow related building collapses and fatalities caused by heavy snows loads, about the largest avalanche that came down on Sakhalin in the village of Oktyabrsky in February 1945, taking away the lives of 149 people, and entered the list of the largest disasters in the USSR.
What to do when you are in avalanche and how to avoid and escape them, museum visitors could learn from a video made by the Institute.

The Sakhalin Regional Museum would like to thank everyone who attended the lectures during 2018! We hope to see you again at the Lecture Series on Natural History of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands in the coming year!
