    • Revealing spatial and temporal patterns of outdoor recreation in the European Alps and their surroundings 

      Schirpke U; Meisch C; Marsoner T; Tappeiner U (2018)
      Outdoor recreation contributes vitally to human well-being, but spatio-temporal mapping on large scales of this ecosystem service is rarely addressed in a comprehensive manner. In this study, we aim to map recreation supply, ...
    • Rock glaciers in crystalline catchments: Hidden permafrost-related threats to alpine headwater lakes 

      Ilyashuk B; Ilyashuk E; Psenner R; Tessadri R; Koinig KA (2018)
