Changing Risks from Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs)

Changing Risks from Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs)

We automatically detect catastrophic outburst floods from moraine-dammed lakes in the Himalayas from satellite images. We estimate the frequency of GLOFs to quantify the regional GLOF hazard.

Evolving Risks from Himalayan Glacial Outburst Floods

Evolving Risks from Himalayan Glacial Outburst Floods (GLOFs)

We numerically model the 2012 glacial lake outburst flood in the Seti River, Pokhara, with standard step methods. We use such simulations for future GLOF scenarios and hazard assessment.

Projektname 3

Learning landslide triggers from complex networks

We examine rainfall-triggered landslides in Japan. We analyse an extensive landslide catalogue and relate these probabilistically with precipitation and other predictors.

Earthquake Hydrology

Earthquake Hydrology

Why and how do some streams respond to earthquakes while other don’t? In order to explore seismo-hydrological process responses to earthquakes, we develop and apply physics-based models.

Dendroecology

Dendroecology

How do trees respond to natural disturbances? In collaboration with the GFZ, we explore tree growth responses to disturbances, such as earthquakes, using stable isotopes and wood micro wood anatomy.

Ecogeomorphology under disturbance

Ecogeomorphology under disturbance

What are the geomorphic impacts and the effects of volcanic eruptions on the terrestrial organic carbon cycle? We explore these and other questions using remote sensing data, field work, and modeling.

Geophysical investigations of debris flows

Geophysical investigations of debris flows

We are using near-surface geophysics and geomorphology tools to quantify the susceptibility to debris flows in small catchments in the surroundings of Braunsbach, Germany.

The role of mass wasting in glacial forelands of the Andes

We explore the deposition of large landslide in the low-gradient glacial foreland of Patagonia. We are trying to unravel timing and mechanisms with respect to the paraglacial landscape evolution.
