Dangersign

Whumpf sound

Område: På dette stedet. Beskrivelse: Svak lyd, men person 30 meter fra utløse punkt følte setningen. Det var tykt snødekke med mye fersk vindtransportert snø hvor drønnet ble utløst. På samme sted ble det fremprovosere skytende sprekker i skavl/leformasjon, men antar at drønnet kom fra lag dypere i snødekket det var lite tegn til propagering i fokksnø og heller ikke sprekkdannelse da drønnet ble utløst. Antatt lag er angitt i profil.
