“Erosion can significantly increase the destructive power of a landslide by rapidly amplifying its volume, mobility and impact force. The threat posed by erosive-landslides is directly linked to their mobility. However, when, how and how much energy landslides gain or lose by…

Prof. Krautblatter was part of the german documentation, broadcasted by ZDF. The part about our research at the Zugspitze starts at 34:10. Link to the mediathek.

In September, we organized a stakeholder meeting at the Schneefernerhaus on the Zugspitze within the AlpSenseRely project. The roundtable with the topic "What needs do you see as users in forecasting natural hazards in climate change?" was an important event and received positive…

The Chair of Landslide Research joined the online European Rock Mechanics Symposium (EUROCK, 21-24 September 2021) with two articles, published in IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science. Here the two contributions High alpine geotechnical real time monitoring and…

Doris Hermle arrived two weeks ago in Rome at NHAZCA s.r.l. (Natural HAZards Control and Assessment), a startup company of La Sapienza University. NHAZCA is an international leader in the analysis and monitoring of natural hazards and large infrastructure, and also in risk…

Matthias Hofner joined the TUM Landslide Group as a researcher working on the assessment of the rockfall hazard in the Partnachklamm gorge on behalf of the municipal council of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. He finished his B.Sc. in Geosciences and M.Sc. in Engineering and Hydro Geology at…

The German working group Geomorphology is organising the Mid-European Geomorphology Meeting 2021, taking place Nov. 6-10 in Munich. Of course, the current situation still requires flexibility. All information can be found here. We are looking forward to host a nice conference! …
