Guidelines for climate change adaption at the local level in the Alps
(Italian presidency of the Alpine Convention, 2014)
The Summary of the Guidelines presented here is the outcome of the work of the Task Force on Climate Change (CC) of the Italian Presidency of the Alpine Convention. The initiative launched during its mandate (2013-2014) ...
Weiterentwicklung der Wirkungsketten als Grundlage für die DAS-Indikatorenentwicklung
Um die Ursache-Wirkungsbeziehungen zwischen Klima und möglichen Klimawirkungen darzustellen, wurden im Rahmen des Vorhabens „Netzwerk Vulnerabilität“ in Zusammenarbeit mit den Netzwerkpartnern für 14 Handlungsfelder ...
Sentinel-1 and Ground-Based Sensors for Continuous Monitoring of the Corvara Landslide (South Tyrol, Italy)
The Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission provides synthetic aperture radar (SAR) acquisitions over large areas with high temporal and spatial resolution. This new generation of satellites providing open-data products has enhanced ...
Welchen Beitrag können Satellitenfernerkundung und insbesondere Copernicus-Daten und –Dienste für die Ermittlung ausgewählter Indikatoren des Indikatoren-Sets der Deutschen Anpassungsstrategie an den Klimawandel (DAS) leisten
Since 1998 the Copernicus programme has included the collection, processing and provision of earth observation data in order to investigate environmental and safety-related questions concerning the status of the earth. The ...
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 ...
Beyond the Expected: Dealing with Cases of Overload and the Residual Risk of Natural Hazards in the Alpine Region
Invited inspirational free talk without abstract
Climate change impact assessment on mountain water resources: a System Dynamics approach supporting multi-risk management and adaptation planning
Mountain environments are facing important impacts due to climate change and human activities. Shifts of temperature and precipitation are affecting the amount of available water in mountain environments, especially ...
A Comparison of the Signal from Diverse Optical Sensors for Monitoring Alpine Grassland Dynamics
Grasslands cover up to 40% of the mountain areas globally and 23% of the European Alps and affect numerous key ecological processes. An increasing number of optical sensors offer a great opportunity to monitor and address ...
Beyond the Expected – Dealing with the Case of Overload and Residual Risk of Natural Hazards in the Alpine Region
An integrated and interdisciplinary management of the risks associated with natural hazards has become most widely standard in the Alps. Integrated risk management (IRM) can be seen as crucial part of the overarching concept ...
