Snow avalanche are geophysical flows that pose a significant threat to life in alpine areas. To understand the behaviors of avalanche flows requires huge amount of accurate data. A developing 5.3 GHz RADAR system at UCL will give geographers a chance to find the velocities and velocity fluctuation of avalanche flow. This RADAR will be the first high-resolution (1m) instrument for these geophysical phenomena. This paper introduces this innovative RADAR system and also gives its developing status.
