Beyond the Expected: Natural Hazards in the Alpine Region - Dealing with Cases of Overload and Residual Risk
Risk governance of natural hazards in the Alpine region is a sensitive and complex issue. In the context of residual risk and cases of overload, it becomes an even greater challenge. The question of how to provide sufficient ...
Critical Data Source: Tool or Even Infrastructure? Challenges of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing for Disaster Risk Governance
Disaster risk information is spatial in nature and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) play an important key role by the services they provide to society. In this context, to risk management and ...
Conceptualizing community resilience to natural hazards: the emBRACE framework
The level of community is considered to be vital for building disaster resilience. Yet, community resilience as a scientific concept often remains vaguely defined and lacks the guiding characteristics necessary for analysing ...
Multi-Temporal X-Band Radar Interferometry Using Corner Reflectors: Application and Validation at the Corvara Landslide (Dolomites, Italy)
From the wide range of methods available to landslide researchers and practitioners for monitoring ground displacements, remote sensing techniques have increased in popularity. Radar interferometry methods with their ability ...
Multi-hazard and multi-risk in mountains: applying the IPCC-AR5 concept in practice
While most hazards have been critically scrutinised for many years, research about the interaction of multiple hazards and the assessment of related risks is still in its infancy. This limitation may have substantial ...
