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