Community specific hydraulic conductance potential of soil water decomposed for two Alpine grasslands by small-scale lysimetry
For central Europe in addition to rising temperatures an increasing variability in precipitation is predicted. This will increase the probability of drought periods in the Alps, where water supply has been sufficient in ...
Determining the drivers for snow gliding
Snow gliding is a key factor for snow-glide avalanche formation and soil erosion. This study considers atmospheric and snow variables, vegetation characteristics, and soil properties and determines their relevance for snow ...
Spatial evaluation of snow gliding in the Alps
The slow downhill motion of snow on the ground, referred to as snow gliding, impairs afforestation, increases the predisposition for landslides, fosters winter soil erosion, and coincides with the occurrence of glide-snow ...
