Topic: Decision support method for avalanche risk

Abstract: This thesis is part of the Interreg France Switzerland CIME (Choix d'Itinéraire de MontagnE) project which aims to help mountain professionals in their daily decision making. In this context, the main objective of the thesis is to take into account heterogeneous and multi-source information, to combine them and to integrate them into a tool allowing the expert to visualize the level of vigilance to adopt on the ground, with regard to the avalanche risk. This work will implement methods for merging uncertain information in order to aggregate multiple heterogeneous criteria, including those from field observations. This level of vigilance to be adopted locally, along a mountain ski itinerary, will also have to be characterised by a degree of reliability of the assistance provided.

Keywords: Risk assessment - Fusion method - Imprecise uncertain data
