Abstract

On 20-th September of 2002 the tragic event occurred, which took aback the entire population of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania – sudden collapse of the glacier Kolka. Analysis of available instrumental data shows the correspondence of the basic stages, obtained on the different stations of the local network of the seismological observations of RNO-A. For the purpose of the more detailed investigation of the glacier Kolka collapse process data of the seismic stations given by Georgian collegues was investigated.
