Purves, R. S.; Sanderson, M.
Journal of Documentation, v54 n2 p198-209 Mar 1998
Presents adaptations and tests undertaken to allow an information retrieval system to forecast the likelihood of avalanches on a particular day; the forecasting process uses historical data of the weather and avalanche conditions for a large number of days. Describes a method for adapting these data into a form usable by a text-based IR system and discusses advantages. (Author/AEF)
