Disney animations are helping researchers create a warning system for avalanches

Thanks in part to groundwork laid by the animators of Disney’s Frozen, researchers have figured out how to simulate in awesome detail the moment a so-called slab avalanche shears from a mountain. The rendering isn’t just hypnotic—it may well help develop better avalanche warning systems to keep humans away from one of nature’s most fearsome phenomena. Take a look here to see how researchers are using animation to create systems that could save your life.
