Article
Full-text available
Based on glacier retreat and degrading permafrost in high alpine regions across the Bernese Oberland (Central Switzerland), several new hazardous source areas for processes became evident within the last years. The evaluation of susceptible periglacial areas and the assignment of resulting processes by modelling will be one of the major tasks to be...

The main goals of this study were to identify the alpine torrent catchments that are sensitive to climatic changes and to assess the robustness of the methods for the elaboration of flood and debris flow hazard zone maps to specific effects of climate changes. In this study, a procedure for the identification and localization of torrent catchments...
Article
Based on historic documents the event history for 17 mountain torrents in the Swiss Alps was evaluated. Four classes could he determined for the recurrence interval of the debris flow events. The magnitude is not necessarily dependent on the recurrence interval. The characteristics of the catchment basin (disposition) are mainly controlling the mag...
Article
The Rigi Mountain is situated about 15km E of Lucerne, Switzerland. This general area, located on the northern border of the Swiss Alps, receives high annual precipitation totals. Therefore the Gotthard railroad, which carries very heavy traffic, is endangered by rockfalls and mountain torrents. In addition, the forest on the Rigi North Face above...
Article
The reporters of this subject deal with violent movements of the earth and mapping scales. They consider the basis for evaluating natural hazards (disposition and release, approaches to evaluating risks, historic comparisons, geomorphological and general analysis, models and nodel calculations); process models. The examples are mainly taken from th...

We at geo7 are working on an expert tool for triggering of shallow landslides and on an alarm concept for debris flows considering the influence of permafrost and meteorological forecast. Collaboration with University of Geneva, Canton of Bern and Meteodat. Further information: http://anywhere-h2020.eu/en/about-us
